Comments¶ A fine collection of the writings of Thomas Hood ((1799-1845): "A medley of prose, verse and pictures from the Comic Annuals, together with some new material, including the important Literary Reminiscences," - Gilmour. Distinguished provenance: On the front paste-downs are the bookplates of Robert Hoe, H. L. Tevis and John Francis Neylan. This copy was almost certainly bound for Hoe by Matthews.
