Sir William Watson (1858 – 1935), was an English poet, popular for the political content of his verse.He was very much on the traditionalist wing of English poetry. He was a prolific poet of the 1890s, and a contributor to The Yellow Book, a leading journal of the British 1890s; associated with Aestheticism and Decadence,.. On Tennyson's death, Watson was a strong candidate for Poet Laureate but his earlier opposition to the Boer War had made him politically unsuitable and he was passed over for Alfred Austin. This is an edition of 100, printed on handmade deckle edged paper. Light wear to the edges, the spine lable is chipped at the edges, the pages somewhat wavy, probably due to the nature of the paper.
