相關資料

Shepherd pirated The Lover's Tale a number of times before it finally became available in this authorised edition in 1879. Shepherd's manuscript notes in this copy compare the final published text to the 1833 version (which was prepared for publication but abandoned, with only a few copies being distributed to Tennyson's circle). Shepherd's bibliography of Tennyson was published posthumously in 1896, as an expansion of his earlier Tennysonania (1866). (See Wise, Tennyson I.10)
