Modern half-leather, gilt-ruled, black leather label, gilt-lettered and decorated, over contemporary marbled paper boards, modern endpapers. Presentation copy: “From the Author, to George Sumner, Esq.” George Sumner, the brother of Senator Charles Sumner, was a Boston businessman who traveled widely in Europe. He died on October, 6, 1863. About three weeks later, his brother Charles gifted this volume: “Mrs. Lamb with the grateful regards of Charles Sumner, Boston, 1st Nov. “63”. Samuel Rogers (1763-1855) was a banker, a philanthropist, a poet, and a famous conversationalist well connected in English literary society. His poetic output was small, but he was celebrated for his "The Pleasures of Memory", contained herein, which inspired Lord Byron to write a poem, "Written on a Blank Leaf of 'The Pleasures of Memory'". Some wear to paper boards, edges dust-soiled. Half-title, bearing the inscription to Mrs. Lamb, has some large ink spots that have bled through to the verso and one of these has stained the title. A lovely, Very Good copy.
