This is a 1931 Limited edition of Poetica Erotica. This title was originally published in more than one volume. Then, in 1927 the first complete edition in one volume was published. The 1931 edition is a reprint of that first edition. There were 3000 copies that were numbered and this book is number 247 of 3000. It is an old but solid book. The boards are very clean and there is no writing in the book. It contains 770 pages. There is no dustjacket but I do not know if it was issued with one. As far as I know it was not. The title, which is written in gilt on the front board, is still bright and fine. The spine, however, is completely faded but I used a magnifying glass and was able to see that it contains a floral blindstamping, the title in the middle of the spine, and 1931 at the bottom. There is slight toning to the text block from age but for a book of this age it was made very well and the paper is very good so the yellowing is quite slight. There is slight shelf-wear to the extreme top of the spine but little or none at the bottom. The book covers so many authors and poets that it is impossible to list them here. However it is an anthology that all poetry lovers can enjoy. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
