Bibliographic Details

Title: The Universal Library. Poetry. Volume I. ...

Publisher: Ingram, Cooke, & Co., London

Publication Date: 1854

Binding: Hardcover

Edition: 1st Edition


Small 4to. Blue blind-embossed cloth with extensive gilt lettering and decorations. (Ca. 400pp). Frontispiece, illustrations. Very good. Edgeworn and a tad scuffed, but with giltstamping bright and nice. A tight, decent, quite handleable first edition of the hefty poetry volume (another volume covered fiction) -- nice mid 19th-century compilation of the classics of the day, printed in two-column format and with each piece numbered separately. From the library of Wisconsin civic leader JAMES M. LYNCH, chief clerk at the Adjutant General's Office during the Civil War, appointed quartermaster general in 1865; half-title page bears a fine nonauthorial gift inscription to him: "James M. Lynch / From / James W. Ludlam / Dec. 25th, 1858." At upper right of same page, Ludlam's pencilled ownership signature appears. Ludlam joined the Eighth Illinois Cavalry during the Civil War; his namesake father (1807-59) was an important pioneer resident of Evanston, Illinois. Bookseller Inventory # 37613
