Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ...thrilling joy repaid A long, long course of darkness, doubts, and fears--The heartsick faintness of the hope delay'd, The waste, the woe, the bloodshed, and the tears, That track'd with terror twenty rolling years. 3779 Scott: Lord of the Isles. Canto vl St. 408 PEA CE--PEDANTR Y. The moon is at her full, and, riding high, Floods the calm fields with light. The airs that hover in the summer sky Are all asleep to-night.
