Description:

Second Edition. First published in 1827. Small 8vo. pp. xix [i], 251. Additional title-page of 1827. One leaf prospectus laid in. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine. Endpapers slightly foxed. The earliest generally available facsimile edition of Tennyson's first book, originally printed at Louth in 1827 - a collaboration including poems by Tennyson and his elder brother, Charles Tennyson Turner.

The present edition, edited by Hallam Tennyson, identifies the contributions, adds four poems omitted from the original edition, and includes "Timbuctoo" (1829), Tennyson's Cambridge Chancellor's Medal poem.
