Hard Cover. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1899. Very Good.
Early reprint. Publisher's coated green cloth, lettered in gilt to spine and front board, with additional decorative gilt to front board, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed. Very good with some wear to extremities and rubbing to boards, gilt very slightly faded, light scattered soiling to rear endpapers and to some page edges. A sturdy copy. Songs and Other Verse is a compilation of several short poems by American poet and author Eugene Field, first published in 1896, the year after the author's death. Most famous for his children's poetry and his humorous, satirical newspaper columns, Field's poetry is well represented here, and shows his characteristic lyrical, song-like style of writing.
