"In Memoriam A.H.H." or simply "In Memoriam" is a poem by the British poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson, completed in 1849. It is a requiem for the poet's beloved Cambridge friend Arthur Henry Hallam, who died suddenly in Vienna in 1833.
A delightful copy. There is some scattered foxing to the prelims and a previous owner's gift inscription to the ffep. The leather is very slightly faded to the spine and very lightly rubbed to the edges but otherwise all is well.
