A complete 7 volume set of New Excursions into English Poetry published between 1944 and 1947 by Frederick Muller Ltd.

“This series is something of an experiment and demands original work both from the anthologer and the artist, who have worked in collaboration, though there has been no attempt to give literal and pictorial illustrations of the actual poems.”

A superb collection of important poetry anthologies in original unclipped dust-jackets and illustrated by some of the leading neo-Romantic artists of the period.

English Scottish & Welsh Landscape verse chosen by John Betjeman and Geoffrey Taylor with lithographs by John Piper

Dust-jacket a little worn to edges with a small segment missing to foot of spine, otherwise very good.

a few light dust marks to rear cover, otherwise near fine.
