Limited Edition



I've been going through the poetry section the last few weeks, and I came across this gem. The book is a beautifully-bound leather volumes, "A Half-Century of Sonnets" by Gustav Davidson (1924). It's a limited edition, number 5 of 550 copies, inscribed by the author with his photo.

Not one of my usual posts, I know, but I couldn't resist sharing it.

The post reminded me of Stephen Colbert.

Hmmm. A (portion) of a Corpus hanging on the wall. Quite a find.
