Poems and Prose Remains

A. H. Clough

“THE TRUEST EXPRESSION… OF DOUBT AND STRUGGLE”: CLOUGH’S POEMS AND PROSE REMAINS, HANDSOMELY BOUND

CLOUGH, Arthur Hugh. Poems and Prose Remains. London: Macmillan, 1869. Two volumes. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter polished tan calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, red and green morocco spine labels, marbled boards, endpapers and edges. $350.

First edition of Clough’s collected work, illustrated with engraved frontispiece portrait in Volume I, handsomely bound.

Clough’s poetry “reveals, without self-consciousness, a character of marked sweetness, humor and lofty moral feeling… [He may be remembered as] the truest expression in verse of the moral and intellectual tendencies, the doubt and struggle towards settled convictions of the period in which he lived” (DNB).

A fine and handsome pair of volumes.
