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.Green cloth has some fading on the spine and slightly bowed boards. Interior is NF except for light foxing on endpapers and pastedowns. The book is printed on heavy deckle edged paper. ; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 71 , 16 pp. John Lane ads pages
