Author: HORNE (RICHARD HENRY HENGIST):
Title: Orion. An Epic Poem. In Three Books. Second Edition.
Description: London, J. Miller, 1843. Slim 8vo, pp. [iv], 137 [138 adverts], marbled boards; all before title-page removed, front cover stained. "In 1843 Horne published the work for which he is best-known, the three-book epic Orion. This poem, broadly of the Spasmodic school, more credibly imagines the torments and distractions which befall genius than the precise nature of its enduring achievements. It was glowingly reviewed (by, among others, Edgar Allan Poe), and its public reputation was cannily enhanced by Horne's decision to price copies at a farthing, gaining him the nickname the Farthing Poet" (Oxford DNB).
