A handsome, 2 volume, 1835 Complete Poetical Works of Thomas Moore. These include Moore's classic works Lalla Rookh and his Irish Melodies. The fine-combed marbling on these is pleasing.
About the Work -
Moore might be considered Ireland's national bard and some consider him to Ireland what Robert Burns is to Scotland. Moore is commemorated in several places: by a plaque on the house where he was born, by busts at The Meetings and Central Park, New York, and by a bronze statue near Trinity College Dublin. There is a road in Walkinstown, Dublin, named Thomas Moore Road, in a series of roads named after famous composers, locally referred to as the Musical Roads. Many composers have set the poems of Thomas Moore to music. They include Gaspare Spontini, Robert Schumann, Hector Berlioz, Charles Ives, William Bolcom, Lori Laitman, Benjamin Britten and Henri Duparc.
