Sonnets pour Helene - RONSARD, Pierre de

Eyre & Spottiswoode, 1934, Hardback ..
Condition: Good. Boards gently faded, a little rubbed and soiled. Bruised at head and tail. Edges of text block dusty. Internally bright and clean.

Red cloth with gilt titling to spine. IT was suggested to me that I should attempt a version of Ronsard's Sonnets for Helen. I read them through carefully and decided to attempt the task, not because of any interest that I had in French Petrarchan poetry, or in the background of the Pleiad, but simply because I thought the poems beautiful. 291pp. Index. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Translated by Humbert Wolfe.
