New Acquisition: Spenser’s Minor Poems

Special Collections is pleased to announce the acquisition of a beautiful collection of poems: The Minor Poems of Edmund Spenser. Published by Ashendene Press in 1925, the book contains The Shepheardes Calender, Compaints, Daphnaida, Colin Clovts Come Home Again, Amoretti, Hymnes, and other of the famous author’s most important and enduring short works. The word “minor” in the title refers only to the length of the book, rather than to this landmark book’s literary significance. One of only 200 copies, this well-preserved piece of literature makes an excellent addition to the other Edmund Spenser holdings in Special Collections.
