It's great you are re-launching this site! Looking forward to your informative and enlightening reviews.
Thank you all - I am very happy that you all are interested! Am working on a look at The FS excellent war poets LE's, probably will hit around August.
A review of The Travels of Sir John Mandeville Beyond the Holy Land, Foolscap Press (2019) is up on Books and Vines. Also, The Voiage and Travail of Sir John Mandeville, Grabhorn Press (1928).
Congratulations on the relaunch. I regularly followed your articles, which were extremely informative.
Thank you LesMiserables!
A review of The Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde, Arion Press (2018) is up on Books and Vines.
>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.
A review of The Descent of Ishtar, by Diana White, Eragny Press (1903) is up on Books and Vines.
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.
