Scarce pirated edition of Alfred Tennyson’s poems written between 1830 and 1833. This work is attributed to the London bookseller John Camden Hotten, who advertised the title in 1862. Tennyson took out an injunction against Hotten, preventing the copies from being sold, and getting £100 from the printer and an apology.
