With printed Erratum slip tipped to front free endpaper. "Cory's poetry, popularized by the two printings at the beginning of the last decade of the nineteenth century and by A. C. Benson's further edition in 1905, reached the hands of many young poets, themselves educated at publish schools in atmospheres similar to the Eton of Cory's day, evoking the memories of their youth and allowing them to appreciate, in the verse, the validity of a relationship between boy and man. Cory gave the Uranians at once an inspiration and an example." Timothy d'Arch Smith, Love in Ernest, pp. 11 and 246.
