Poems by Alfred Tennyson Tennyson( Book )

The Moxon Tennyson, as it has come to be known, was first published in 1857. Though all of the Tennyson poems had been previously published, the Moxon edition incorporated engraved illustrations, including many by the Pre-Raphaelite artists Millais, Hunt and Rossetti. Although the initial edition of 1857 was not an immediate success, the growing popularity of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, as well as of illustration, meant that the edition was re-issued numerous times throughout the 1860s, which became known as the "Golden Age" of illustration in Victorian Britain. Characters from Tennyson's poetry also feature heavily as subjects in Pre-Raphaelite paintings

Mountains and molehills; or, Recollections of a burnt journal by Frank Marryat( Book )

1 edition published in 1855 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frank Marryat (1826-1855) left England for California via Panama with a manservant and three hunting dogs in 1850, hoping to find material for a book like his earlier Borneo. On his return to England in 1853, Marryat married and brought his bride back to California that same year. Yellow fever contracted on shipboard forced him to cut the trip short and return to England where he died two years later. Mountains and molehills (1855) is a sportsman- tourist's chronicle of California in the early 1850s: hunting, horse races, bear and bull fights. It also includes an Englishman's bemused comments on social life in San Francisco, Stockton, and the gold fields
Casa Guidi windows : a poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning( Book )

1 edition published in 1851 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1847, Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-61) moved with her new husband to an apartment in Florence, in the wake of perhaps the most famous literary courtship of the nineteenth century. She soon took to calling their home the Casa Guidi. From there, she observed the events of the early Risorgimento. It was at this time that she produced some of her finest work, including Aurora Leigh and Casa Guidi Windows. An impressionistic and thoroughly atypical landmark in the Romantic canon, the latter was written in two parts, separated by several years. Beginning with the memory of a singing child and a lush description of Florence's beauty, the first part explores the air of optimism that permeates both the city and the narrator. By the second, disillusionment is rife: Florence has become the scene of demonstrations and broken political promises. This reissue of the 1851 first edition includes Barrett Browning's own introduction
