Medieval Latin Students Songs (With Hand-Illuminations)

San Francisco: Windsor Press, 1928. Vellum. A lovely copy --bound in full vellum-- of this 1928 translation of "Medieval Latin Students Songs". Tight and Near Fine in its original vellum, with bright red-lettered titling along the rounded spine. Just a touch of very light spotting at the panels, otherwise clean as could be. Copy #37 of only 150 printed on handmade Rye Mill paper in gothic type by Cecil and James Johnson, with 2 hand-illuminated pages and numerous multi-colored, illuminated initial letters, provided by Howard Simon. John Addington Symonds, historian/scholar/translator, best known for his "History of the Renaissance" and his translation of "The Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini", here provides a good introduction to his own translations from original sources. 12mo, includes the publisher's unprinted slipcase, which is solid and well-preserved but shows very minor splitting along several edges. A very impressive copy of a handsome book, overlooked by Ransom. Fine. Item #16995
