Presentation copy, inscribed on t.p. vol. 1: "Marianne Hunt from her loving husband the Author." Additional presentation inscription on front flyleaf: "(With the wife's hearty permission). To. Dr. E.G. Ludlow [i]n cordial remembrance of the evening [we?] had the pleasure of passing with him [on?] the 1st of August, 1853. [signature] Leigh Hunt." With numerous corrections throughout in Hunt's hand. While some of the corrections are typos, others are quite long notes, as if the author intended to incorporate them in later editions. A splendid association item.
