Alfred Tennyson, Poet Laureate, 1st Edition of Enoch Arden, Etc, 1864, Leather

About

This first edition of Alfred Tennyson's (1809-1892) famous narrative poem was published in London by Edward Moxon and Co, of Dover Street. in 1864. It was printed by Bradley and Evans, Whitefriars, London. And it was bound in crimson Moroccan leather by Meugier Freres of Paris, with gilt spine with gilt title and gilt date, five raised bands on the spine, gilt-stamped tooling inside the covers, and handmade marbled end-papers. The condition is excellent. The title of this book is Enoch Arden, Etc. It is 178 pages and contains fourteen other Poems and several Experiments besides the main poem. The great narrative of Enoch Arden appears on pages 1 to 50. The fourteen other Poems and Experiments are on pages 51 to 178. This prized example of Victorian literature has been subsequently adapted into films, plays, stories, music, and Fine Art paintings. It tells the tale of a man lost at sea, the bereavement of the lady left behind, her later marriage to another man with whom she has children, and the eventual return of Enoch whom no one recognizes anymore, and finally relates his silence and compassion to not disturb the happy family, keeping his loneliness and broken heart to himself.
