The Poems of William Cullen Bryant Selected and Edited, with a Commentary, by Louis Untermeyer; Illustrated with Engravings by Thomas W. Nason. Collector's Edition.

Norwalk CT: The Easton Press, 1981. Hardcover. xix, 298p., engravings as called for (Nason is quite good), hardbound in 10x6.5 inch reconstituted leather boards gilt with raised bands and rulings, all edges gilt with headbands and placekeep ribbon bound in, moire' endsheets, the full Easton monty. A very nice copy, Easton made a point of commissioning special antique-looking paperstock ("brown-flecked" is the word used), not only attractive but good alkaline stuff. An essentially perfect copy, that is as-new as if brand-new from the publisher, totally sound, clean and unmarked; however, there is one flaw, attributable to careless presswork: on p.235 there is a big quarter-inch "brown fleck," one of the always-possible problems with special paper. The word this fleck obscures is "tingles". Masterpieces of American Literature (series).
