from the library of Morton N Cohen, with his edited review
First edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14cm, 221pp.
Not signed as such, but this copy comes from the library of Professor Morton N Cohen, the authority on Lewis Carroll and Victorian literature, and has his printed review with manuscript annotations and edits loosely enclosed. There are three print outs of the review stapled together and each with differing edits.
"Throughout his long working life, Tennyson was experimenting with new forms and subjects. Widely read in a range of disciplines, he responsed to many of the personalities, events and discoveries of the Victorian age. Still widely regarded as an apologist for the 'establishment', Tennyson was always an outsider. Scourged by reviewers, and haunted by his own nervous disposition, Tennyson endured years of despair. Even when the tide turned in 1850 Tennyson remained a stern critic of his contemporaries."
Very good condition, with a little light wear to the wrapper.
