Lord Tennyson, Poet Laureate for much of Queen Victoria’s reign, produced a tremendous body of work. Drawing from classical themes and excelling at short lyrics, his poetry has remained popular for nearly two centuries. Oriana, and Other Poems, first printed in 1888, is some of his later work. It is paired with eighteen steel engravings, many by Maud Humphrey who unfortunately was not credited on the title page. Maud Humphrey was an illustrator and suffragette, and the mother of Humphrey Bogart. Other illustrations are by HP Barnes.

This Estes & Lauriat Edition, later printing is in very good condition. In the original cloth boards, very good with only chips and rubbing to watercolor front board, rubbing to spine ends, and small marks to back board. Text block is very good with only first gathering loose but holding. Illustrations fine.

 A very good antique copy of Tennyson, wonderfully illustrated.
