Southey's Poetical Works, Complete in One Volume

£30.00

Product description

Robert Southey (1774 – 1843) was an English poet of the Romantic school, one of the Lake Poets along with William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and England's Poet Laureate for 30 years from 1813 until his death in 1843. Although his fame has been eclipsed by that of Wordsworth and Coleridge, his verse still enjoys some popularity.


The covers and spine are of dark brown leather. Five raised bands to spine with gilt title in the second compartment. On the inside of the covers , the outer edges have an ornate gilt design. There is gilt on the page ends.

On the front cover, in gilt, is written "A. O. Hardy. As a Token of the Esteem and Regard of the School House. 1857." On the front free end paper is the signature of A O Hardy and of his son.

There is shelf wear and bumping to the covers. The front cover has been detached at some point in the past and currently has clear tape on the inside of the cover to hold it to the rest of the book. There is mild tanning to the front and back free- and paste-down end papers. Inside the pages are clean and, outside of the front cover, the binding is sound.
