The Complete Poems of Rupert Brooke, 1941
This is a nice, hard leather volume of the poetry of Rubert Brooke, published in 1941 . There is a nice picture of Rubert in the front, and the volume is in excellent condition. The book measures 7 and 1/2 inches long, 5 and 1/2 inches long, and is 1/2 inch thick. The author's name is tooled in gold on the front. Sadly, inside the book, I found a 5 X 7 glossy photo of a little boy wearing a bowtie, and appearing to from the 40's or 50's, The photo was made in a studio on Kensington Church Street in London. I would never remove the photo; it's been in the book of poetry for years, and there is will stay!
