Tennyson : Notebook 'XXXI'

Tennyson, Alfred Tennyson, Baron, 1809-1892


<p style='text-align: justify;'>This is a small duodecimo notebook of two paper lots with brown marbled covers and a red sheep spine, probably used by Tennyson during 1830 and 1831. At this period of his life he would have been in Cambridge or off to Spain with Arthur Hallam, but he gives his address on the <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(2);return false;'>inside top cover</a> as 49 Southampton Row, Russell Square (presumably London). The notebook has had all but eleven leaves excised.</p> <p style='text-align: justify;'>The last leaf of the notebook—which is separated from the penultimate leaf by thirty-nine stubs—contains upside down on its verso the prefatory poem to 'The Palace of Art'.</p>
