"Reviews." Athenaeum 1.1544 (30 May 1857), 693.


An illustrated edition of Mr. Tennyson’s Poems has been long talked of as a thing on which many artists were labouring in a spirit of love. The volume is now on our table; and we may at once say that expectation will not suffer reverse. It is a beautiful and splendid book: worthy of the artists engaged, and worthy of the poet beloved by all artists. More than fifty drawings, from the hands of Messrs. Creswick, Mulready, Stanfield, Maclise, and some younger painters, adorn this precious work,–to which is prefixed a bust of Mr. Tennyson, by Robinson.
