A. J. Wilcox, protective tissue. Title with engraved image of Longfellow's home in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This edition is based on the Riverside edition. It contains the entire text as published in the six volumes of verse, and such condensed bibliographical and other notes as seem desirable for the general reader and compatible with the limitations of a one-volume edition. A biographical sketch introduces the volume. The poems are given as nearly as may be in their chronological order, but a table at the end of the volume indicates this order more precisely. Originally published in this edition in 1893. This is the first reprint of that edition. Light fraying top and bottom of spine, tear and 1/2 x 1/4" hole in half title (repaired).. Early. Cloth. Very Good. Illus. by Wilcox, J. A. J.. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
