A Dictionary of Quotations From the English Poets - Bohn, Henry George Originally published in 1902, it is, according to the author - 'The present edition of my Dictionary of English Poetical Quotations is a verbatim re-issue, with a few slight corrections, of a volume printed for private distribution in July 1807.' This is an exhaustively comprehensive reference work. Its 730 pages contain every memorable quote from every english poet known to history - from Addison, Joseph (1672 - 1719) to Young, edward (1684-1765) taking in every other literary bright light and wordsmith along the way. A hefty, wonderful tome. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Obscure Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
