Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is one of America’s best poets from the 19th century. “Paul Revere’s Ride” and The Song of Hiawatha are considered his greatest works. He was one of the Fireside Poets who saw tremendous popularity in the mid 1800s. A master of lyric poetry, his work often includes moral or cultural themes. He was also influenced by mythologies from various cultures. In The Song of Hiawatha, Longfellow appropriates the stories of the Ojibwe to weave together an epic tale of Hiawatha and his love for Minnehaha.

Fine in the original illustrated boards, brown, beige, and green colors bright. Text block near fine, only very minor crease to bottom of pages. Specially printed on Peter Pauper Press paper. No date listed. In the original slipcase, about fine with only minor dampstains and rubbing near edges.

A delightful illustrated edition of one of Longfellow’s best poems.
