A handsomely bound copy of this title first published in 1861, “an anthology so successful that, as J. W. Mackail wrote in the Dictionary of National Biography, ‘it remains one of those rare instances in which a critical work has substantive imaginative value, and entitles its author to rank among creative artists'” (ODNB). The anthology includes lyrics and songs from Wordsworth, Keats, Shelley, Byron, and Tennyson, who originally suggested the project to Palgrave.

Octavo (184 121 mm). Quarter vellum, Gift inscription to front free endpaper, small split to lower front gutter, spine a little marked and darkened, a very good copy.
