Back Country Poems

Boston: The Potter Publishing Co., (1892).


Hardcover. First edition. Neat contemporary owner name, corners a little bumped, else about fine. The first book by this popular poet, possibly self-published. Foss was a New Hampshire-born Brown University graduate. He is best known for his wildly popular poems "The Old Oaken Bucket" and "The House By the Side of the Road." Scarce.
