[Nesbit, E- Association Copy] A Pomander of Verse, Presentation Copy

London: John Lane at the Bodley Head, 1895.

First edition. Original superb tan cltoh with equisite cover illustration stamped in gold by Laurence Housman. Housman also contributes hallf-page woodcut illustration on title page and vignettes in the book. "Olindo Malagodi, from E. Nesbit," written boldly on front free fly. Superb Association Copy, inscribed by Nesbit to Olindo Malagodi, (1870-1934), Italian socialist and later, politician, journalist and author in London and a close friend of Nesbit. Edith Nesbit expounded Socialism early on, was an active member in the Fabian Society, and a close follower of William Morris. A wonderful association. Extremities of book slightly sunned, else near fine. Scarce thus.
