J.M. Dent & Sons, London
1934 (Reprint with additions, thus being a first in this form)

Small hardcover, 428pp.

Poetry/Drama. Number 96 in Everyman's Library.

The Golden Treasury of English Songs and Lyrics is a famous anthology of poetry carefully selected and organised by Victorian-era critic and poet Francis Turner Palgrave.

This rare 1934 revised edition is the first in its new expanded form. It adds some 'serious omissions' such as Donne and Clare, and incorporates the later lyrical poets who were not included in the original collection (Palgrave deliberately excluded works by poets who were still alive as at 1861). This additional material takes the form of a 'supplementary book' comprising 79 pages, and features later poets such as Hardy, de la Mare, Yeats, Browning, Tennyson, Poe, Whitman, Kingsley and many others. An essential collection for lovers of classical poetry.

Good condition. Well worn and with edgewear, faded spine, browned pages and some soiling. Several pencil lines down the margins of the 'Ode to Immortality' but nowhere else that I can find; pages generally clean albeit lightly toned. Ends of spine tatty. Binding feels a little loose but is intact with no visible cracking. Some dog-earred pages. Name of former owner inscribed on FEP. Please click here to ask a question
