Poets of the Younger Generation

New York: John Lane The Bodley Head, 1902.

First edition. viii, 565, 10 (ads) pp. Original ribbed blue cloth decorated in gilt, gilt topstain. Very Good with slightly soiled and scratched cloth, spine gilt dulled, hinges starting, offsetting and foxing to prelims, name on paste down and a few pencil marks in margins.

A scarce poetry anthology featuring Rudyard Kipling, Bliss Carman, A. E. Houseman, William Butler Yeats, and 29 other younger poets with incongruously antiquated Arts-and-Crafts-style woodcut portraits, mini-biographies, and selections of their work. It was conceived as a follow-up to the scandalous The Yellow Book, aimed at a similar readership, and took around five years for the editor to realize. (See Parker, Sarah "Framing the Woman Poet: William Archer’s Poets of the Younger Generation."). Item #140937189
