Discover the eloquence of Samuel Rogers, an English poet renowned for his discursive poem, "The Pleasures of Memory." This edition, absent a publication date but thoughtfully inscribed in pencil by a previous owner from 1882, carries the weight and charm of the Victorian era.

Beyond its historical value, it serves as a delightful reflection of Rogers' reputation, not just as a poet, but also as a celebrated conversationalist and companion to some of the era's greatest poets.
