On the verso side of the half title page, the author has also added a line of correction for page 58. 216 pages being a collection of 37 poems, the most important being A Visit From St. Nicholas. This is the first appearance of this now famous and beloved poem "in a collection of Moore's own verse, and thus his first public acknowledgment of authorship." (Marshall, The Night Before Christmas A Descriptive Bibliography of Clement Clarke Moore's Immortal Poem, p. 10) The poem first appeared in The Troy Sentinel on December 23, 1823 anonymously. (BAL, 14348) As stated in Marshall's bibliography regarding this title: "This is considered by many scholars to be the definitive version." One's imagination is provoked with the possible connection between the author's last poem titled: "Southey" which is an ode to his deceased wife, and the name of the person who was presented with this book: "Miss Southey".

Both volumes of this two volume set are in very good+ condition in light blue cloth covered boards with red, printed, cloth title blocks on the spines. The gilt titles have unfortunately worn off these labels. Both are small octavos of 8 by 5 3/8 inches with spots of fading to the cloth on the boards and fading of the title blocks as noted above. Without dust jackets, but the books are contained within a paper covered slipcase with a wrap-around, printed title on three sides of the slipcase. A total of 1135 pages in the two volumes. Illustrated with color frontispieces in both volumes. Translated from the Japanese by Arthur Waley. Said to be "originally written three centuries before Chaucer, this story of life in imperial Kyoto became what is now believed to be the oldest existing novel." (NYT book review)
