London: Chatto and Windus, 1874. . Small 8vo, navy-blue cloth, gilt tooling on front cover and spine; previous owner's initials on half title FIRST EDITION. This is the original edition and NOT a reprint.This poet is known principally for the opening lines of the present work:"We are the music makers / and we are the dreamers of dreams" has been quoted or used in many different media. Sir Edward Elgar set the title ode to music in 1912 in his work entitled "The Music Makers", Op 69. Francis Turner Palgrave in his work "The Golden Treasury" said that of the modern poets, despite his very limited output, O'Shaughnessy (who died at the age of thirty -seven) had a gift in some ways second only to Tennyson, and "a haunting music all his own." He was also alluded to by the Neil Gaiman in his extremely popular comic book series, published in the United States, "The Sandman" in the guise of the envoy of the Endless, Eblis O'Shaughnessy.
