About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Poems of the Past and the Present -- ...

Publisher: New York: Harpers, 1901

Publication Date: 1901

Edition: First US Edition.


The American edition, printed on British sheets, of one of Hardy's most significant collections of poems, inscribed by the author to George Wyndham and dated in the year of publication. Wyndham (1863-1913) was an English politician and man of letters who contributed reviews to most of the major journals of the day, and was a close associate of such figures as Chesterton, Belloc, Kipling, Rodin, and Cecil Rhodes. He distinguished himself during the Boer War as financial secretary of the War Office, and this would have made him an especially sensitive reader of this volume, which includes such lyrics as "Souls of the Slain" and "The Dead Drummer" - "the best war-poems ever written" according to Edmund Gosse. An interesting association copy of an important book. Bookseller Inventory # 12404
