Some Notices of the First Edition.
“Another volume of 'golden apples.'... He (the author) sings in triolets and rondels and rondeaus with the ease that a bird warbles its own wood-notes, and shows us what Pythagoras meant by ‘Mougas Σειρήνων ήδίους.'– Westminster Review.
“One of the most exquisitely delightful of books. If Mr. Austin Dobson writes nothing but the two volumes he has already given to the world, he will have an enduring place of his own in poetic literature.”—Contemporary Review.
“His verses do exactly what they aim at doing, and many of them can hardly be excelled, for gaiety, music, mastery of rhyme, and happy balance of sense and sentiment."-Pall Mall Gazette.
"Mr. Dobson is a skilful metricist undoubtedly."-Athenaum. “Good verses, good humour, and good manners."- Academy.
“The author has amply fulfilled the promise he gave a long while ago of extraordinary excellence in the field he has chosen."-Illustrated London News.
