>10 busywine: Another great review. Added to my wish list. I'd probably buy it at the member's price but not a chance at list.

While working on a coming in August article on FS excellent war poets LE's -- added some News on Thornwillows latest on Books and Vines News.

As mentioned on another thread, there is a pretty cool mystery contest going on that -without need to purchase anything -- allows one a chance at a pretty special, one of a kind, full leather edition of Death on the Nile that would cost in the thousands. See the above news article for more information. Would be awesome for a LT and/or Books and Vines reader to win it!

The Great War Poets - Rupert Brooke, Selected Poems; Edward Thomas, Selected Poems; and Wilfred Owen, Selected Poems, The Folio Society Limited Editions all, are reviewed at Books and Vines.

BTW, two of these are at a significantly reduced price right now at Folio's annual LE sale. At $210, or something like that, these are pretty great deals.

>15 busywine: That’s a proper, thorough review. Thank you, Chris! This should be very helpful for devotees which are still deciding whether to purchase these Poets LE’s.

>16 NLNils:, thanks! Had no idea they were going on sale until I saw such yesterday. Bought each when they came out and thought then that they really did a fine job with these. At the sale price, they are quite a deal being letterpress, autolithography, etc. Best yet, hate to admit, is I had not read much of either three poets before...thoroughly enjoyed doing so.

Excellent, in-depth reviews. I can't be sure, but compared to some of your other reviews, you seem to write more passionately about the content here, for these war poets. Presuming you are a big poetry fan. Anyway, thank you for doing this.

My only complaint is that I am now deeply tempted to buy one of them.
