Descripción

1p., 12mo. Nicely printed on one side of a piece of laid watermarked paper. In good condition, lightly aged and worn, with slight loss to one corner caused by removal from an album. Sixteen-line poem in four four-line stanzas. Signed in type at foot 'TOM FAED.' The poem is a lament by the betrothed of a sailor drowned in the Firth of Forth. The first stanza reads: 'Oh wae is me! - I sit alane, | And never mair maun hear | The honied words o' love that fell, | Upon my listening ear.' Last stanza: 'For better far mid tanlged weed | On wild Balcarras shore, | I then had been my Willie's "Bride | O' Death" for ever more.' The item was found in a collection of the papers of Faed's son Johh Francis ('Jack'). No other copy traced, either on OCLC WorldCat or on COPAC, and no reference found to it anywhere. For information on Faed, see his entry in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography. He is said to be the artist equivalent of Burns. N° de ref. de la librería 17202
