The Poetical Works of William Cowper [1867]

£17.99

Product description

Published in 1867 by George Routledge and Sons, described as a New Edition. Red leather binding with gilt decoration and lettering, 5 raised bands on the spine. Marbled ened papers and gilt on cut edges of the pages.

An attractive edition of the complete poetical works of William Cowper. Edited by The Rev. Robert Aris Wilmott, with his introduction of forty eight pages. With fine engravings by Birket Foster. Includes a number of poems translated by Cowper from Greek, Latin and French sources.

William Cowper (1731 – 1800) was an English poet and hymnodist. One of the most popular poets of his time, Cowper changed the direction of 18th century nature poetry by writing of everyday life and scenes of the English countryside. In many ways, he was one of the forerunners of Romantic poetry.

Some rubbing wear to the extremities of the binding. Internally in excellent condition, with fresh and clean pages, and a tight binding.
