Poems by Thomas Gray
London: Riccardi Press, 1920.
Beautiful collection of poems by the tender English scholar, Thomas Gray (1716 1771).
Includes 'Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College', 'The Progress of Poesy. A Pindaric Ode', 'Elegy Written in a Country Courtyard', 'Hymn to Ignorance. A Fragment', and 'Ode on the Pleasure arising from Vicissitude', among others.
Perhaps the most charming thing about this book is how many of the poems by this famous writer lie unfinished.
