Poems, Chiefly Lyrical

London: Effingham Wilson, 1830. First edition. Hardcover. Small octavo. 154pp. + 2 pages of publishers ads. Contemporary green full morocco boards. Covers with stamping and gilt ruling. Spine with gilt stamped floral designs and lettering. The book is a beautifully bound first edition, second state copy, indicated by the presence of the errata page, and with the correction of "coronet' to "carcanet" on p.72, but the error of p.91 listed as "19" is still present. The work is significant in that it was Tennyson's first collection of poetry published after he embarked on his solo literary career, and includes the first appearances of such Tennyson classics as "Claribel" and "Mariana". Binding with some minor indentations to the covers, but other than that pristine. Interior with some light water staining to edges, especially the initial and final pages, with some light sporadic foxing, staining and smudging throughout. Inscription to the previous owner in ink, dated "26th, August 1831", at the front free endpaper. Binding in near fine, interior in overall very good- condition. vg- to near fine. Item #42098
