London and Cambridge: Macmillan, 1863. First English edition, there was an American edition in 1862 (NCBEL v.3, 487). Contemporary half-morocco and marbled paper boards, modern leather label, gilt. A family copy, this belonged to Patmore's youngest son, Henry John (born 1860), from his first wife, Emily, signed on the title "Harry Patmore". This is the last volume in Patmore's tetralogy on love and marriage, "The Angel in the House", which was "lavished with sincere praise...(by)....Tennyson, Browning, Ruskin and Carlyle". Harry died young, at 23, but was himself "a charming lyrical poet....a selection of his poems was privately printed..." (Richard Garnett in DNB). Re-backed with matching leather, wear to corners. A Very Good copy.
