MICHAEL HAMBURGER

TREES, 11 poems with 15 wood engravings by Rama Samaraweera, 1988.

This edition draws together all the tree poems from the poet's previous work, plus two new poems written after the great storm in 1987. 226 copies were printed on Saunders smooth mould-made paper, about half of which were signed by poet and artist, the rest left unsigned and unbound when the press ceased operation. The book was translated into German and became a poetry best seller.

This SIGNED copy is bound in quarter green goatskin with hand-marbled paper sides over mill boards with small vellum corners, in an 'elephanthide' printed paper dust wrapper. 34pp, 240 x 145mm. FINE (as new) @ £120 (P&P inc.)

Another SIGNED copy bound in full Kelmscott-style cream vellum with green vellum slips showing, hand-marbled endpapers, in a portfolio @ £180 (P&P inc.)

(Please email us to order the items above)

Remaining numbered copies, unsigned, sewn and bound in a printed card wrapper with printed dust wrapper. These are FINE copies, no different from the others except that they missed being signed. Allow 5 days for dispatch as I shall be sewing and binding them to order. @ 23. (P&P inc.)
