About this Item

Blind stamped brownish cloth with gold lettering on spine. Spine chipped at top and bottom, and splitting up the binding edge for an inch at both top and bottom. The bottom section is in danger of splitting a segment of the spine off the binding. 320 pp. heavily foxed. Includes nine page biographical memoir by Baldwin, the editor. Haskins was born in Dublin, was educated as a physician, and lived for some time in Belleville, River Trent, Loughborough, and Frankford [Bay of Quint, Upper Canada] beginning about 1834. Book contains "The Cross: A Poem in Three Books;" "Hymns and Sacred Poems;" "Songs of Solitude;" "Occasional Pieces;" and "Miscellaneous Poems." A sampling of titles from the last section: "The Dying Soldier;" "Winter;" "On Philology;" "To Ireland;" "The Burial at Sea;" and "The Dying Bard." Also includes 2 pages of notes on the miscellaneous poems. A very plain (even ugly) book in physical appearance [and I am a poor judge of its literary or historic merits], but appears to be scarce. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000574

International shipping is problematic. Unfortunately, the abebooks matrix is inappropiate. Costs except to Canada, which is a bit cheaper, do not depend upon country, but upon the weight of the book. I try to ship anywhere, but I must break even on shipping costs. Any book and package under one pound will generally ship via International First Class Mail at the standard shipping rate of about $15.50 depending upon country. Books over one pound (454 grams) usually must ship via Priority Internatinal Flat Rate Mail at $24.50 (the Post Office charges me $23.95, so I'm not trying to gouge the customer. If you order shipping at the higher rate, and I can ship it for less because it weighs less than one pound, I will give you a partial refund. Books over four pounds in weight, or oversize (generally about folio size), are extraordinarily expensive to ship internationally; but if interested, I will work with you to make such shipments possible. I apologize for the inconvenience that sometimes results from the limitations on international shipping. The costs are going up at an alarming rate, and until someone brings back merchant sailing ships, I don't know the solution.
