Description
 

By A. E. Houseman with wood engravings by Agnes Miller Parker. London: Primrose Hill Press, 1997. Second Printing. Introduction by Professor Ian Rogerson. A favorite in the English speaking world since its appearance in 1896, this unique edition combines the definitive setting of the poem (no mean achievement) approved by The Housman Society with 56 illustrations, drawn and engraved by, as contemporaries expressed it, “the finest wood engraver in the world today.” This “well produced publication…reveals a lesser known, more contemplative side of Agnes Miller Parker’s oeuvre – a foretaste of her poignant illustrations for the Limited Edition Club and Thomas Hardy’s novels” opined Joanna Selborne, Multiples (Nov 1995).
