Notes

First pirated edition of Tennyson's suppressed poems, taken from the Poems, Chiefly Lyrical of 1830 and the Poems of 1833, and printed by J. Dykes Campbell and sold by the bookseller John Camden Hotten. Tennyson took legal action, obtained an injunction to prevent its sale, and extracted an apology and 100 damages from Hotten. The book was issued in both green and blue wrappers, without known priority.
