Alfred Tennyson

Poems 1830-1833

      Toronto: Privately Printed, 1862. Collectible; Fine An exceptionally clean, well-preserved copy of this very scarce 1862 pirated edition. Square 12mo, original blue printed paper wrappers, uncut. This scarce little volume was compiled and edited by J. Dykes Campbell. It consists of poems which Tennyson did not reprint in his first collected edition of 1842, but which had appeared in the "Poems Chiefly Lyrical" (in 1830) and "Poems" (1833). This was a pirated edition and John Camden Hotten, who tried to put it on the English market, was fined 100 pounds and made to deliver up all copies for destruction. Bright and Near Fine, with very light, forgivable foxing to the preliminaries. Preserved in a custom-made quarter-morocco box.
