GERTZMAN, Jay : Robert Herrick. Fantasy, Fashion & Affection : Editions of Robert Herrick's Poetry for the Common Reader 1810-1968. By Jay Gertzman. , Bowling Green State Univ Pop Press 1986.

Presentation Copy.* First Edition, gilt cloth [see followig note] & portrait dws. C.pp246 with numerous illustrations, excellent. Presentation inscription from Gertzman dated August 1986. And with a 14-line typed letter signed by Gertzman thanking the presentee, whose help with collecting editions of Herrick is noted in the Preface, and further commenting on the binding and production of the book : 'The incorrect spine stamping has resulted in most of the copies in this condition being destroyed. This creates the amusing circumstance of the first (and probably only) "A" item in the Gertzman bibliography having a variant state. Surely there is silence in heaven on this point. Officially the book has not been "published" as yet. Unfortunately the poor presswork ... will not be corrected - unless by that most remote of possibilities, a second printing'. (Book ref. 7555 )  £ 55.00
