A recasting of Brander Matthews volume of the same name published by Coomes - New York 1887. As stated by Lang in his preface- an editor must be meddling and thus he has re-ordered some of the poems by date, omitted some and added others which had escaped Matthew's attention or have subsequently been recommended for inclusion by other bibliophiles. Good (Book- moderate shelf wear and soiling to cloth. Front end paper starting but mull and cords sound.Browning with a little foxing to the end papers which are not of such good quality paper. Attractive armorial book plate to front paste down and discreet original bookseller label - William George's Sons Bristol). Please see our images of the actual book offered for sale.
