What Our Customers Say...

Description

Early Edition, Leather Binding

The second edition of Alfred Tennyson's narrative poem, The Princess, bound with the fourth edition of In Memoriam. Written in blank verse, Tennyson's poem tells the story of a princess who forswears the world of men and establishes a women's university, only for three men to enter the university disguised as women students. In Memoriam is an elegy for Tennyson's Cambridge friend Arthur Henry Hallam, who died of a cerebral haemorrhage at just twenty two. Tennyson was Poet Laurate during the reign of Queen Victoria, and a number of his phrases have become commonplace in the English language, such as 'Tis better to have loved and lost / Than never to have loved at all'. Prior owner's pencil inscription to the front endpaper, 'Whitchurch 1848'.
