New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1884. First edition. Hardcover. First edition, 1884. Navy cloth hardcover 12mo, 109pp. Very good with slight loss to the spine ends, bump to upper right corner. Contents are clean and unmarked, though lightly tanned around the edges. Laid in is a letter from the author, dated 1884, to poet and author Charles L. Moore, thanking him for sending a copy of his book "Poems Antique and Modern" (and promising to read it, noting his "excitement to read anything beyond the political columns of the daily papers"). Henry Cuyler Bunner was born in Oswego, New York and educated in New York City. From being a clerk in an importing house, he turned to journalism and quickly assumed the editorship of the comic weekly 'Puck'. He developed 'Puck' from a new struggling periodical into a powerful social and political organ. Charles Leonard Moore (1854-1925) was an American poet and essayist, born in Philadelphia. He became a lawyer and in 1878-79 served as United States Consul at San Antonio, Brazil. He contributed critically to the Chicago Dial Journal, and published "Poems Antique and Modern" the year before Bunner's "Airs from Arcady" Very Good. Item #z06565
