Welcome to Peter Harrington Books

Tennyson, Alfred, Lord, The Life and Works, 1898.

Presented by Pom Harrington, owner of Peter Harrington Rare Books.

Edition de Luxe, one of 1,050 sets. A handsomely produced edition, presented here in an extraordinarily lavish binding by one of the finest English bookbinders of the period, Birdsall of Northampton: the front cover of each volume carries a scene in coloured morocco onlays, drawn either from scenes associated with the life of the poet or from his works, especially the idolised “Idylls of the King”. A magnificent set that attests to the enormous popular appeal bordering on reverence for the Poet Laureate who was lionised like no other.
