Baltimore: Turnbill Brothers, 1877. Hardcover. RARE BALTIMORE TITLE. First Edition. The author, a native of Baltimore, was an esteemed poet and talented musician, well known for his political beliefs and his support for the Confederate army, which earned him the title, “Bard of the Confederacy.” He also wrote a severe criticism of Edgar Allan Poe’s “Al Aaraaf Tamerlane,” but the comments concerning Poe in this title are brief and without resentment.
