Selected with an introductory poem by Austin Dobson.
Large paper copy. One of a very small number printed in this format for friends of the author. With an early facsimile copy of the author’s bookplate to the front pastedown. Very scarce. London Lyrics was first published in 1857, with various revisions and expansions over the succeeding years.
