THE ORIGINAL POEMS AND OTHERS Ann & Jane Taylor and Adelaide O'Keeffe. Edited by E. V. Lucas Illustrated by F. D. Bedford. Wells, Gardner, Darton & Co. London 1903 (?) 412pp Illustrated Hardback. Jane Taylor (23 September 1783 - 13 April 1824), was an English poet and novelist. She wrote the words for the song Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star in 1806 at age 23, while living in Shilling Street, Lavenham, Suffolk. The poem is now known worldwide, but its authorship is generally forgotten. It was first published under the title "The Star" in Rhymes for the Nursery, a collection of poems by Taylor and her older sister Ann (later Mrs. Gilbert). The sisters, and their authorship of various works, have often been confused, in part because their early works were published together. Ann Taylor's son, Josiah Gilbert, wrote in her biography, "two little poems- 'My Mother,' and 'Twinkle, twinkle, little Star,'(both included in this collection) are perhaps, more frequently quoted than any; the first, a lyric of life, was by Ann, the second, of nature, by Jane; and they illustrate this difference between the sisters. This book would appear to be an anthology of several small collections either written jointly or separately by the sisters. It is undated but a copperplate gift inscription on the obverse of the frontis is dated 1903 and I think it must be a second edition as there are references to 'this new edition'. Bound in blue linen covered boards with blue and gilt decoration (after F. D. Bedford) to the front, spine and back. Gilt top page edges. There is some pushing to the top and tail of the spine and some fox spots to the prelims and the last three pages. Ref P4 Size: 412pp. N° de ref. de la librería 004793
