1 CLARK, HARRY HAYDEN & FOERSTER, NORMAN. James Russell Lowell: Representative Selections, With Introduction, Bibliography And Notes.
American Book Company, New York: 1949 h Hardcover, no dustjacket. Good condition considering its age but stained on front cover. 
The aim of the authors of this volume has been to interpret and reprint selections representing Lowell's development as an unusually versatile man-of-letters, using a multitude of forms from youth to old age. What is sometimes condemned in Lowell as inconsistency can better be defined, according to the authors, as open-mindedness and the courage to modify attitudes which did not seem to him justified by the results.
