Christmas Eve and Easter-Day. A Poem

London: Chapman & Hall, 1850. First edition. Hardcover. 12mo. [2], 142, [2]pp. Contemporary 3/4 olive cloth over marbled paper covered boards, with gold lettering to spine. Raised bands. Marbled endpapers and paper edges.

First edition of these paired poems which are meditations on the nature of religious faith in an age of doubt (Victorian era); a work about religious questions rather than answers, and about the psychology of religion rather than theology.

"Christmas Eve and Easter-Day. A Poem" first appeared in bookshops on Easter Monday, April 1, 1850, and, as the publisher hoped, had a seasonal appeal.

Spine slightly age-toned. Upper front corner rubbed. Some foxing to very first leaves (fly leaves and title page). Binding in overall good to good+, interior in very good condition. g to vg. Item #41438

Price: $125.00
