The Illustrated Edition is a celebration of the nineteenth-century bookmaker's art; its visual elegance reflects the eloquence of the poetry. Each poem is introduced by a glimpse into Longfellow's world, excerpts from his journals and diaries that show the genesis of that poem in his daily life.

The illustrations reproduce steel engravings from his Collected Works of 1856 and 1885. The original texts of the poems are duplicated from the 1885 volume. The covers reproduce the marbled papers of Samuel Longfellow's 1886 biography of Henry, issued in an edition of 300.

The remaining illustrations are portraits from the collection of the Longfellow National Historic Site. They bring the humanness and the family life of Longfellow into the heart of the reader. Four portraits of Longfellow mark your progress through the sections of the book and through the poetıs life.

The bibliography is both historical and contemporary, and the reproduction of HWL's signature closes the book.
