Kingston, NY: Henry Abbey, 1886. v,,256pp. Blue cloth, lettered in gilt. Binding a bit dull and rubbed, textblock uniformly tanned at edges; a good, sound copy. "New and Enlarged Edition" (in fact, enlarged by over 100 pages from the 1879 edition). A good association copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endsheet: "To Mr. Edmund Gosse from Henry Abbey with kind regard." During his later years, Abbey enjoyed a somewhat more appreciative audience among British reviewers than he did in the US, but in 1906 he left his mark on popular memory with the poem, "What Do We Plant When We Plant a Tree?"
