(London: George Routledge and Sons, 1886), A nicely bound set of Longfellow's writings. Though much of his work is categorized as lyric poetry, Longfellow experimented with many forms, including hexameter and free verse. His published poetry shows great versatility, using anapestic and trochaic forms, blank verse, heroic couplets, ballads and sonnets. Typically, Longfellow would carefully consider the subject of his poetic ideas for a long time before deciding on the right metrical form for it. 11 volumes. The Riverside edition. Engraved portrait frontispiece. Small 8vo, three-quarter blue morocco and cloth lettered and decorated with foliage motif in panels of spines, t.e.g. Minor rubbing to extremities, else a near-fine set.
