Details

Document Type: Book
All Authors / Contributors: James Russell Lowell
OCLC Number: 7321453
Notes: In verse.
Later editions published under title: A fable for critics.
Title page in red and black; on verso: Leavitt, Trow & Co., printers and stereotypers 49 Ann-street, N.Y.
Pages [iii]-v, rhymed preface in prose form.
One of several issues of the 2nd edition, which was stereotyped and published (anonymously) in 1849. Differs from the 1st edition in the punctuation and rubrication of the t.p., the insertion in the title of the line "A vocal and musical medley", the omission of "by" before the publisher's name, and in the correction of several misprints in the body of the work. There are no ruled headlines and the vignette on the last page is omitted. Does not contain the "Preliminary note to the second edition."
Cf. G.W. Cooke. A bibliography of James Russell Lowell. 1906, and Notes on the earliest editions of Lowell's Fable for critics, by H.L. Koopman, in the Literary world, Jan. 1898 (v.29, p. 9).
Description: 80 pages 20 cm
Other Titles: Fable for critics
Responsibility: by a wonderful quiz, who accompanies himself with a rub-a-dub-dub, full of spirit and grace, on the top of the tub. Set forth in October, the 21st day in the year '48: G.P. Putnam, Broadway.
