The Poetical Works of John Greenleaf Whittier

£120.00

Product description

After his death in 1892, several collections of Whittier's works were published, both in America and in the UK, and this volume appeared after at least 2 others, and reproduces much of their contents. Much of the writer's poetry deals with the topic of anti-slavery, as he was very much concerned in the Anti-Slavery Society (indeed, was a founder member). His Quaker background adds a further dimension to his works.

John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892) was an American Quaker poet and advocate of the abolition of slavery in the United States. Frequently listed as one of the Fireside Poets, he was influenced by the Scottish poet Robert Burns.

Our book is in very nice condition for its age, bound in full maroon leather wwith the poet's name in gilt on the front, gilt title etc on the spine, and a single-line gilt border to the covers. All page edges also gilt. Spine rather worn compared with covers, particularly at top & tail. Ribbon marker present but detached. Marbled endpapers, Inside, the frontispiece lacks its tissue guard. Binding is firm with no loose pages; all pages clean and bright. Neat ink-written gift inscription on reverse of frontispiece, dated 1906.
