Thomas Pringle (1789-1834) was born in Scotland. He became known as the "Father of South African Poetry", having moved to South Africa in 1820, partly due to assistance from Sir Walter Scott, who admired his poems. This volume is bound in the publisher's original blue cloth decorated with double gilt border rules on the front cover, gilt titling and device on the spine, and double blind border rules on the rear cover. Condition is very good. The blue cloth binding is bright, clean, and square with a nicely rounded spine and only minor wear at extremities, but does bear a crease running half the vertical length of the front cover. The contents are crisp, clean, and tight with no spotting. There is an inked previous owner's name dated "Pretoria. 1893." on the ffep and an owner's name in pencil on the title page. The original brown endpapers are intact, but with a little splitting along the front hinge (with the mull beneath fully intact) and a crack on the front pastedown corresponding to the crease in the front cover.
