Tennyson (Alfred, Lord)

Timbuctoo. A Poem, which obtained the Chancellor’s Medal at the Cambridge Commencement. [Contained in: Prolusiones Academicæ praemiis annuis dignatae et in curia Cantabrigiensi recitatae comitiis maximis,

      Cambridge: John Smith 1829 - FIRST EDITION, a few tiny spots, pp. 41, [3], 8vo, stab-sewn, original plain wrappers discarded, title and rear blank somewhat dusty, cornertips slightly creased, good Tennyson’s second publication, and the first published under his name. Tennyson was pleasantly surprised to hear that his poem had won the Chancellor’s Medal - the first poem in blank verse to do so - and it received an effusive positive review in ‘Athenaeum’, among other honours. This is the pamphlet which printed the five prize poems of the year (only a very few copies were printed separately, probably at Tennyson’s request). It was issued in plain blue, green, or drab wrappers, and these must have been removed from this copy - although they left no trace whatsoever. (Ashley Library Vol.VII, p.103; Hayward 245; Thomson II; Tinker 2059; Wise 3) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
