Order Nr. 50295

With an introduction by Penelope Fitzgerald. Founded in 1912 in London by Harold Munro, the Poetry Bookshop was one of the most important of these smaller houses, publishing books by Robert Graves, Richard Aldington, Ford Madox Hueffer, F. S. Flint, Eleanor Farjeon and others as well as the popular and important series of anthologies, Georgian Poetry. The Bookshop also published three series of rhyme sheets, two periodicals, and several series of Christmas cards, most of them with color illustrations by well-known illustrators. The firm also maintained an open shop that carried poetical works of other British publishers.
This bibliography describes all the books, chapbooks, rhyme sheets, periodicals and most of the ephemera in detail. With more than 50 black-and-white illustrations as well as seven color plates including a foldout and tipped-in Christmas card. Distributed by Oak Knoll Press.
