Who can resist the lure of the sea? With breathtaking paintings and poems telling of beaches and sunshine, tugboats and battleships, mermaids and pirate adventures, this collection exalts all the beauty, magic, and pleasure of the sea. Once again Mark Daniel has selected poems by some of the greatest American and English writers - including Whitman, Dickinson, Shakespeare, and Rossetti - and paired them with luminous paintings and engravings from the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Most of these works of art have been chosen from private collections and have never before been seen by the general public.
This is a used copy in good condition with some wear to the protective cover and yellowing to the pages.
