Notes: Longfellow's most famous poem, sometimes considered the first American epic to be wholly free of European influence; nevertheless it was much parodied (including by Lewis Carroll). The first London edition had appeared a few months earlier. An attractive copy, with the variants noted by Blanck conforming to the second printing of the text - published a couple of weeks after the first.
