TIMBUCTOO. A POEM, WHICH OBTAINED THE CHANCELLOR'S MEDAL AT THE CAMBRIDGE COMMENCEMENT, M.DCCC.XXIX [contained in:] PROLUSIONES ACADEMICAE PRAEMIIS ANNUIS DIGNATE
Cantabrigiae: Typis Academicis Excudit Joannes Smith, 1829.. 41,pp. Octavo. Unprinted aqua blue wrappers, bound up in later quarter calf and marbled boards by Stikeman. Spine extremities rubbed, ink date (1829) and partially effaced ownership signature on front wrapper, otherwise a very good or better copy. First edition of Tennyson's second published work, presented in company with the other Chancellor's prize- winners of the year (poems by Charles Merivale and C.R. Kennedy, in Latin, Greek and English). This copy has the preferred reading, "cones," on page 10. Copies also appear in dark blue wrappers, and in drab wrappers, which Wise denotes a "remainder." Arthur Hallam was also a competitor in the competition, but did not place, and Thackeray, then also at Trinity, ridiculed the choice of subject. HAYWARD 245. TINKER 2059. WISE 3.
