THE BATTLE OF LONCARTY: An Historical Poem and THE RETIRED LIEUTENANT: A Poem
E. Churton, London 1844 - 1844 (1836) Scarce early reprinting of Lake's 2 most notable poems. Clipped signature glued in at end of preface: "Your most Humble most Obdt. Servt, John Lake" along with a small period news clipping that refers to the poet. Also with a most unusual and attractive frontis (bookplate?) of 2 coats of arms (Errol & Tweedale ((Marquis of Tweeddale) both related to Scotland's Hay Family) hand colored and tipped onto a sheet with hand drawn tromp l'oeil picture frames, suspended from an ox yoke. "The Battle of Loncarty" deals with early Scottish history recounting the 10th century battle between the Scots and the Danes. Bound in 3/4 leather over marbled boards, unfortunately poorly repaired with old tape includingthe gutter. Lacking marbled ffep, so the tape repair is to th verso of the frontis. Contents clean, complete and in fine condition so an excellent candidate for rebinding. Very rare title possibly unique in this form. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
