About this Item

A small 16mo in blindstamped green cloth, gold gilt titles to spine only, with purple ex libris ownership stamp of (we presume) the Capuchin Friary, Erith, Kent to dedication page but NO other library markings. There is NO errata slip. PON to FFE "P.D. Hughes" dated 12.7.17., and a pencil notation "1st / L55.00," later marked up to "75--." A piece -- three inches wide and nearly an inch deep -- has been torn away from top of title page, presumably to remove another ownership name, though title text is not impinged. Rear hinge could be and probably should be re-glued -- the flap is there, exposing the mull -- but we have not undertaken. The poet's first book, dedicated to his father-in-law, Thomas Love Peacock, the pages moderately toned but not brittle; still easily turned and read. Meredith is reputed to have grown unhappy with this juvenile verse and later destroyed as many as 300 copies of this limited printing. 160 pp., in pale green endpapers. Reduced from $770.
