CommentsAn uncommon work of over 40 poems and sonnets by Sir Henry Parkes (1815-1896), an Englishman who migrated to Australia in 1839 and eventually became one of its most prominent political leaders. See Wikipedia. Interesting contemporary annotations in ink on the title-page, one which reads "Not published / Aug 15, 1857."
