Poems of Passion – Ella Wilcox Wheeler – Siegle Hill, Sangorski & Sutcliffe Edition c1910

Short Description

This is the rare and beautiful edition of the Poems of Passion published by Siegle Hill, London and reproduced from a manuscript inscribed and illuminated by Sangorski and Sutcliffe.

Ella Wilcox Wheeler (1850-1919) and American romantic poetess who caused quite a stir when this work was first published in the 1880’s mainly because the title alone was rather bold for the American Mid-West in that period.

This edition is such a beautiful book. Squarish octavo, 8, 101 and 3 pages printed on thick sturdy wove paper. The decorative work by the famous bookmakers and binders Sangorski and Sutcliffe is a delight. Bound in watered green silk covered boards blind stamped gilt design and title to front and spine, unique decorative endpapers. A trifle spotting really a very good copy of a sought after work.

And, the poems are pretty good and make a rewarding read including … Love’s Language, Impatience and Friendship after Love …

Poems of Passion illuminated by S&S – would make a super gift for a loved one.
