What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Leather Binding
Renowned for his iconic lyric poems that often presented stories of mythology and legend, Longfellow became the most popular American poet of his day and had extensive success overseas. He is best known for the works 'Paul Revere's Ride', 'The Song of Hiawatha', and 'Evangeline', but he is also renowned as the first American to translate Dante Alighieri's 'Divine Comedy'. This work is copiously illustrated throughout by Thomas Seccombe. This copy is undated, dated using Copac and the prefatory notice to the front of the text.
