Description

The monumental title page seen here is another example of Pickering’s influence on Rogers. In his time, Pickering had also revived the Caslon type, which is generously used in Riverside editions, including The Love Poems of John Donne. This edition makes a fine example of the breadth of Rogers’ allusive styles. Compare its modest nineteenth century simplicity to the elegant arabesque title page of The Songs and Sonnets of Pierre de Ronsard.

Type: Caslon
