Edwin Arnold's Poetical Works [Signed 2X] - Arnold, Edwin - 1889. 
Roberts Brothers, Boston 1889 - A Very Good copy of Edwin Arnold's Poetical Works, presented in two volumes, with EACH VOLUME SIGNED, CONTEMPORARILY DATED, AND PLACED BY EDWIN ARNOLD on the second front free endpaper (spine ends worn and showing so loss, modest shelf wear, board corners rubbed); being a complete edition of Arnold's then-existing Poetical works. [Roberts Brothers published an earlier collection of Arnold's works in 1880, the Preface to which earlier, less comprehensive, edition, is included in this edition, as is, of course, the Preface to this larger 1889 edition.] Arnold is best-known for his "Light of Asia" (1879), an Indian epic dealing with the life and teaching of the Buddha, an important work which introduced the Buddha to the west, was quite popular both in England and in America, is included in Volume I of this set, and which constitutes his primary work in his effort to render the life and philosophy of the East in English verse. In our experience, signed copies of Light of Asia in any edition are exceptionally difficult to find. A Very Good copy, CONTEMPORARILY SIGNED, LOCATED, AND DATED BY ARNOLD IN EACH VOLUME. QUITE SCARCE INDEED. [PLEASE NOTE: International shipment must be by Priority Mail.] [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
