Comments¶ An elaborate edition of Gray's poetry, with some of his correspondence to Horace Walpole and Gilbert West, nicely illustrated with three albumen prints. This edition was so highly thought of that it was regularly used as a prize book (especially at Eton) and is often encountered, as here, with an extra leaf bound in presenting this book as an award for academic excellence.
