Correspondence of Thomas Gray Volumes I-III

£150.00

Product description

Correspondence of Thomas Gray
Edited by the late Paget Toynbee and Leonard Whibley
With Corrections and Additions by H W Starr
In 3 volumes. Volume I: 1734-1755; volume II: 1756-1765; volume III: 1766-1771
Oxford University Press, 1971. First published 1935.
Hardbacks; 145 x 220 mm; black boards with gold titles on spine; volume I: lx & 454 pages; volume II: xxxiv & 456 pages; volume III: xxxiv & 459 pages: 1369 pages in total. Original clipped dust jackets. Illustrations in monochrome include portraits, maps, facsimile letters, etc.
The books are in very good condition. The bindings are sound though the books are very slightly cocked. The spines of the dust jackets are faded but the printed titles are still crisp and clear. There is very little bumping, chipping or marking of the jackets. There is very slight foxing to the top page edges.
Thomas Gray (1716–1771) was an English poet, letter-writer, classical scholar, and professor at Pembroke College, Cambridge. He is widely known for his Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard, published in 1751. Gray was an extremely self-critical writer who published only 13 poems in his lifetime, despite being extremely popular.
These volumes are essentially scholarly works and not necessarily aimed at the general reader. They will be of interest to those studying the world and the works of Thomas Gray, and his circle of friends and acquaintances.
