A fantastic antique bound pair of books. Published in 1873 in half leather binding. This is two volumes of the Hoods Own Magazine. Thomas Hood (23 May 1799 – 3 May 1845) was an English poet, author and humourist, best known for poems such as "The Bridge of Sighs" and "The Song of the Shirt". Hood wrote regularly for The London Magazine, the Athenaeum, and Punch. He later published a magazine largely consisting of his own works. Hood, never robust, lapsed into invalidism by the age of 41 and died at the age of 45. 

There are black and white illustrations throughout, with many humorous and poetical. A fabulous set of books, perfect as a gift for any collector or to read and enjoy.

Condition

Bumped corners and split spines. Foxing to pages. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.
