Here is a stunningly illustrated copy of The Year's At the Spring - An Anthology of Recent Poetry. With the beautiful artwork of Harry Clarke throughout. Being a first edition, published by George Harrap & Co., London in 1920. The contents are in excellent condition. With one condition point to note being some water staining to the bottom front corner and over on the back board.

With 24 full-page illustrations by Clarke - 12 in colour including the frontispiece and 12 in two-tone. There is also a full-page black and white illustration and numerous black and white designs. Harry Clarke (1889-1931) is also known for his work with stained glass and he was a major figure in the Irish Arts and Crafts movement. This work includes poems by Walter de la Mare, Rupert Brooke, Thomas Hardy and John Masefield amongst others. 

Inside the pages are clean, bright and tightly bound. Has a delightful bookplate on the front paste down and a small gift inscription opposite on the front free endpaper dated 1920 (see photos). All colour plates are present as called for, and all in top order.

Light brown cloth covered boards have grey and red titles and decoration to the front and spine. With some rubbing to the corners and spine ends, to reveal boards in one place at the top of the front board. With a slight bump on the top edge of the rear board. Has the above-mentioned water staining to the back board (see final photo), and a little to the bottom front corner with a brown mark at the corner tip. Otherwise clean and smart.
