About this Item

Illustrations by George Wharton Edwards and F. Hopkinson Smith. 4to. Beige and grey cloth with gilt lettering and black and gilt decorative stamping. 50pp, (3pp). Top edge gilt. Frontispiece, 27 full-page illustrations (as called for). Good plus. Binding rather edgeworn (more so at head and tail of spine) and as usual a bit rubbed, scuffed and age toned; inner hinges artfully reinforced with cream cloth tape, though internally tight 'n' bright and a sound very good. A tight and nice first of this illustrated edition of Holmes' memorable 1830 poem -- inspired, strangely enough, by Herman Melville's uncle, Thomas Melvill, one of the last of the Boston Tea Party survivors. Stretched out over many leaves, this over-the-top Victorian, almost Art Deco-ish rendition is interspersed with quaint illustrations. Bookseller Inventory # 41233
