RICHARD BARNFIELD'S SONNETS.
Printed in an edition limited to 200 numbered copies by Nicolas McDowall at The Old Stile Press. The Perpetua types were generated by computer and polymer blocks were used throughout to print the book by letterpress on 300gsm Somerset Printmaking paper, and bound at The Fine Bindery. All the images in this book and those used in its binding are by Clive Hicks-Jenkins, and signed by him on the last page. These Sonnets by Richard Barnfield (1574-1627) were originally published in 1595--one year later than The Affectionate Shepheard--in a volume entitled Cynthia.
