About this Item

3 volumes. frontispiece, xcvi, 264p; vi, 307p; xii, 386p. Contemporary polished calf with a richly gilt spine in compartments and gilt foredge. There is an interesting observation in Joseph Shaylor’s The Fascination of Books, printed 1912, p297-298 which is worth quoting in full: “It is recorded that upon the publication of William Cowper’s Poems, there was scarcely a review which did not load them with the most scurrilous abuse, and condemn as fit only for the butter-shop; but they still rank among our national poetry. The power of the reviewer today is gradually becoming less, for the reading public are now more in a position to decide for themselves upon the merits of a book.” First Pickering edition nicely printed by Charles Whittingham. Includes an inscription to William James Newman from his kind friend W.C. Bisse 1836. Light wear to the binding with small chip at the headband of volume one, otherwise a very attractive copy.
