First published in 1810 as an anonymous introduction to a book of drawings, this book was later published as a separate volume, and had gone through 5 editions by 1835. De Selincourt's 1906 edition is reproduced as a guidebook to the landscape in which Wordsworth set so much of his poetry, with an introduction, appendices, and notes textual and illustrative. The text contains complete poems and four contemporary illustrations.

About the Author:

William Wordsworth, born in Cumberland in 1770, is one of England's most famous and best-loved poets, and played a large part in the development of the Romantic movement in English literature. Wordsworth was England's Poet Laureate from 1843 until his death in 1850.

Review:

A fascinating insight not only to the man himself and his writings on the area, but also a 'time machine' picture of the Lake District at the time of Wordsworth's tour
