A sound and solid copy of this scarce early work drawn from his travels throughout Middle East and Europe. Text block edges are red. One copy noted in Library of Congress. This established his reputation as a poet.TAYLOR, Bayard, author, born in Kennett Square, Chester County, Pennsylvania, 11 January. 1825; died in Berlin, Germany, 19 December, 1878. He was the son of Joseph and Rebecca (Way) Taylor, and was of Quaker and South German descent. His first American ancestor, Robert Taylor, was a rich Quaker, who came over with Penn in 1681, and whose eldest son inherited land that now includes "Cedar-croft, " the poet's recent estate. His grandfather married a Lutheran of pure German blood, and was excommunicated by the Quakers. The poet's mother, although a Lutheran, was attached to the Quaker doctrines, and the Quaker speech and manners prevailed in her household. Bayard was named after James A. Bayard, of Delaware, and his first book bore on its title-page, through a mistake of Griswold, its editor, the name of "James Bayard Taylor. " After reaching his majority he always signed his name Bayard Taylor. His boyhood was passed near Kennett on a farm. He learned to read at four, began to write early, and from his twelfth year wrote "poems, novels, historical essays, but chiefly poem so" At the age of fourteen he studied Latin and French, and Spanish not long afterward. In 1837 the family removed to West Chester. There, and at Unionville, the youth had five years of high-school training. His first printed poem was contributed in 1841 to the "Saturday Evening Post, " Philadelphia. In 1842 he was apprenticed to a printer of West Chester. His contributions to the "Post" led to a friendship with Rufus W. Griswold, who was then connected with that paper and was also editor of " Graham's Magazine. " Griswold advised him concerning the publication of "Ximena, and other Poems" (Philadelphia, 1844) , which was dedicated to his adviser and sold by subscription. By this time he found a trade distasteful, and, to gratify his desire for travel and study in Europe, he bought his time of his employer. The "Post" and the " United States Gazette" each agreed to pay him fifty dollars in advance for twelve foreign letters. Graham bought some of his poems, and with one hundred and forty dollars thus collected he sailed for Liverpool, 1 July, 1844. Horace Greeley gave him a conditional order for letters to the "' Tribune, " of which he afterward wrote eighteen from Germany. His experiences abroad are well' condensed in his own language: "After landing in Liverpool, I spent three weeks in a walk through Scotland and the north of England, and then travelled through Belgium and up the Rhine to Heidelberg, where I arrived in September, 1844. The winter of 1844-'5 1 spent in Frankfort-on-the-Main, and by May I was so good a German that I was often not suspected of being a foreigner. I started off again on foot, a knapsack on my back, and visited the Brocken, Leipsic, Dresden, Prague, Vienna, Salzburg, and Munich, returning to Frankfort in July. A further walk over the Alps and through northern Italy took me to Florence, where I spent four months learning Italian.
