First edition of this collection of poems, dedicated to Washington Irving. The author states in the preface: “These effusions are the fruit of leisure hours . . . the utmost that can be expected in regard to them is that with the reader, they may beguile some pensive moments, as they did with the writer while he was composing them.” Well said!
