The Poetical Works of Wordsworth, Poet Laureate, Etc., Etc.
WORDWORTH, William; REED, Henry (ed.)
A beautifully-bound American edition of Wordsworth's poetry. Owned by a lady named Eliza Montell Lycett who was born in 1859 in Pennsylvania and died in 1932 in San Diego. The date at the bottom of the inner front board, April 2, 1888, is the date of her marriage to Albert Lang Baily, also of Pennsylvania, so we can assume the book was a wedding gift.
