KEATS, John. The Poems. London: Chatto & Windus, 1920.

4to., 2 vols; half navy mocorro over cloth boards by Maltby of Oxford; five raised bands to spine, ruled and lettered direct in gilt; upper edge gilt, else untrimmed; marbled endpapers; pp. [viii], v-xviii, [i], 2-338, [iv]; [viii], v-viii, 371, [v]; internally lovely copies, the pages perhaps a touch toned, with some offsetting and spotting to the endpapers; upper edge a trifle dust soiled and scored in places; the binding sturdy, expertly retouched along the boards and edges, which have sustained some scuffs, bumps and wear, the leather showing through in places to the boards beneath. Still a very attractive set.
1920s reprint after the 1915 edition by the Florence Press. Arranged in Chronological order with a preface by Sidney Colvin, a noted curator and Keats scholar, who published several editions of Keats's poem and letters, and, in 1917, his major biography. Printed on Arnold paper, the type itself was designed by Herbert P. Horne, who likewise designed type for the Riccardi Press.
