Tennyson was encouraged by the celebrated George Grove to provide the young Sullivan with lyrics for a song cycle. When written, Tennyson disliked his contribution and refused permission for publication. He even offered Sullivan £500 to abandon the project. Sullivan protested and reluctantly Tennyson agreed to publication, but insisted that a prefatory note appear (included with this edition) as well as the additional and separate printing of lyrics before each song. Floral motifs separate the songs. Drawings were to have been provided by Millais, but only one exists as the front cover. In the 1870s this volume was expensive and cherished by musical Victorian households RARE
