A rare collection of poetry and plays from Henry James Snell. Snell (1842–1927) was a well-regarded stained glass and ceramic painter and in addition to his poetry and drama, wrote book on enamel painting etc.
Poor but readable. The backstrip is loose at the front joint with significant loss. This has lead to a little weakening to the upper board but the main body of text remains well-bound and the pages are clean.Sold
