Gunn, Alan Murray Finley. THE MIRROR OF LOVE A REINTERPRETATION OF "THE ROMANCE OF THE ROSE"

Lubbock, Tx.: Texas Tech Press, 1951. 592 pp. The rare first edition. No. 6 of only 25 copies printed.

Original cloth. A very good copy with presentation from the author who hailed from Texas.

According to Gunn, the mirror imagery begins in Guillaume with the Fountain of Love, mirroring the garden, including the lady as rosebud, and ends in Jean with the mirror of generation, taken from the chain of mirrors in the Great Chain of Being that, with increasing distance from God, reflects less distinctly His image.
