About This Item

London: Edward Moxon, 1830. vii,[1],150,[1]pp. Small octavo. Full olive green straight-grain morocco, gilt extra, a.e.g., by Tuckett, "Binder to the Queen." Pictorial vignette on title. Some occasional modest foxing, joints and extremities rubbed, with small crack at top of upper joint, otherwise a very good copy, enclosed in a silk-lined full morocco clamshell box (a bit rubbed). First edition of this collection, among the first books to appear under Moxon's imprint. A delightful association copy, inscribed on the blank prelim: "To Miss E. Hamilton as a parting token of Friendship from Wm. Wordsworth 16th August 1830 Rydal Mount." With the ownership signature in the top margin of the title of "A. Hamilton." It would seem probable that the recipient was the Irish poet Elizabeth Mary Hamilton, sister of Wordsworth's close friend, mathematician and astronomer William Rowan Hamilton. Elizabeth visited Wordsworth in her brother's company during the summer months of that year. Elizabeth Hamilton is recipient of meaningful praise as a poet in O'Donoghue. With the bookplate of Frank Bemis. LIVINGSTON, p. 169ff. O'DONOGHUE, p. 94.
