Mathews' career in publishing "coincided with the transition from Victorian to modern literature, a period which literary historians date from about 1880 to 1920...what makes Mathews unique is the role he played in encouraging new poets..." Well designed, his books featured innovative designers and illustrators. With a checklist. Illustrated. Very fine.
