First editions. Timbuctoo, extracted from Prolusiones Academicae, is Tennyson’s first named appearance in print. It is bound here with the rare Memoir of Henry Fitzmaurice Hallam, the second son of the historian Henry Hallam. His brother Arthur had died in 1833 at the age of 22, and became the subject of Tennyson’s In Memoriam. Seventeen years later, just months after the publication of that work, Henry Fitzmaurice also died, in similarly tragic circumstances, at the age of 26.
