DRAYTON, MICHAEL (1563 - 1631 )
Nimphidia: The Court of Fayrie. Circa 1625. Illustrated By Nicholas Parry
. Nimphidia: The Court of Fayrie. Circa 1625. Illustrated by Nicholas Parry. Tern Press, Market Drayton. 2004, Sixteen watercolours. 52(2)p. 13" x 9.25". Original watercolours scanned and printed digitally by North Shropshire Printers. Text in Caslon on Magnani. Grey cloth spine , leaf-print pattern in brown and tan paper over boards. One of a limited edition of 50 copies. Nimphidia is a narrative poem (published in 1627) about fairies, with King Oberon having many adventures when he sets off in pursuit of his queen. Michael Drayton (1563-1631). was born at Hartshill in Warwickshire in 1563 and as a youth became page to Sir Henry Goodeere of Polesworth. Goodeere is to be credited for Drayton's education. Drayton fell in love with Sir Henry's daughter, Anne, who served as an inspiration for 'Idea'. Drayton's career as a poet was long: from his first published work in 1591 to his last in 1630. He died in comparative poverty, but was buried in Westminster Abbey. He was an extremely prolific writer, producing historical, topographical, and religious verse, as well as odes, sonnets, and satires. His The Ballad of Agincourt opens with the famous lines: "fayre stood the winde for France When we our sailes advaunce ". This, Drayton's most popular work. Nymphidia is a mock-heroic series of fairy poems, or 'Nimphalls'1, much influenced by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Drayton died in London on December 2, 1631. He was buried in Westminster Abbey under a monument with an epitaph by Ben Jonson commissioned by the Countess of Dorset. [ DR - 3 ]( private press ).

FISCHART, JOHANN
Das Glückhafft Schiff Von Zürich : Ein Lobspruch Vonn Der Glücklichen Und Wolfertigen Schiffart, Einer Burgerlichen Gesellschafft Auß Zürich, Auff Das AußGeschriben Schiessen Gen StraßBurg Den 21. Junij, Des 76. Jars, Nicht Vil Erhörter Weis Vollbracht.
Muenchen, Rupprecht Presse. 1927. Dazu eines Neidigen Verunglimpfers schantlicher Schmachspruch, von gedachtem Glückschiff . Samt desselbigen Notwendigem Kehrab ist gethan worden. ( Buch der Rupprecht-Presse , 38 ) München : Rupprecht-Presse, 1927, small 4to. full vellum. 83 [1] pp. Number 19 of an edition of 150 numbered copies hand-printed on Bedenk paper. A example of fine printing by the most profoundly German private press of the early 20th century. Founded in 1914 in Munich by typographer Fritz Helmut Ehmcke, the Rupprecht Presse published over a span of 20 years some 57 books, of which this No. 38. Drawing mainly on German literature for his sources, Ehmcke printed in artistic form a number of works by philosophers, and this poem composed by pro-Reformation satirist Johann Fischart (1546 - 1590) was typical of his choices. One of the most prominent writers of his time, Fischart first saw his poem published in 1576, and it was regarded as one of the most distinguished works of the last quarter of the 16th century. As in all Rupprecht Presse offerings, Ehmcke designed the covers, endpapers and typefaces for this work. Text is in Ehmcke-Schwabacher, designed in 1920; headings in Ehmcke-Fraktur, designed in 1909 and cut by noted typographer Louis Hoell. Hoell also worked with the renowned Bremer Presse of Munich, as did calligrapher Anna Simon, who created the handwritten initials in red for this volume. Finely printed with wide margins on Bedenk hand-made paper with deckled edges. T.e. gilt.( private press ).

Elizabeth Jennings Elizabeth Joan Jennings, poet, born July 18 1926; died October 26 2001. Elizabeth was born in Boston, Lincolnshire, England in July 18, 1926. Her father was a respected Chief Medical Officer who moved the family to Oxford when she was six years old. She later discovered poetry while attending the Oxford high school.

Throughout the 1960's, Elizabeth was one of the most popular poets in England. She never married and published a great number of works. Elizabeth once said, "I write fast and revise very little. A street in North Oxford has now been named after. We are certain she would not have approved. THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW COPIES THE AUTHOR SIGNED, IT IS MARKED D .
