Rondeau Abou Ben Adhem.

Iowa City: Friends of the University of Iowa Libraries, 1984. Paperback. 16mo. Stiff tan wrappers. (2pp). Fine. Item #48591

Pristine first thus of this tiny poetry pairing, "Rondeau" (also known as "Jenny kiss'd Me") and the Arab-themed "Abou Ben Adhem" -- two of the best-known brief poems of the English poet/essayist/critic (1784-1859). Printed by the Maecenas Press and with rear colophon noting limitation of 250 numbered copies (here unnumbered). Unusual -- for the Leigh Hunt completist!

Price: $25.00
