Brown cloth with gilt lettering and elaborate decorations, pasted paper cover illustration of a man smoking a pipe. Hint of shelfwear head and heel of spine. Previous owner signature to front endpaper, otherwise text is clean and bright, no marks. Wonderful frontis illustration with tissue guard. "Poets and philosophers drew solace from the pipe. Milton, Addison, Fielding, Hobbes, and Newton were all smokers. It is said Newton was smoking under a tree in his garden when the historic apple fell. Scott, Campbell, Byron, Hood and Lamb all smoked, and Carlyle and Tennyson were rarely without a pipe in their mouths. The great novelists, Thackeray, Dickens, and Bulwer were famous smokers; and so were the great soliders, Napoleon, Blücher, and Grant. While nearly all the poems gathered here were written by smokers, several among the best are the work of authors who never used the weed- one by a man, two or three by women. " (from the Preface).
