Francis Turner Palgrave's The Golden Treasury was originally published in 1861 and became the standard anthology of poetry for over 100 years. Its original aim was to teach 'those indifferent to the Poets to love them, and those who love them to love them more', and in its many editions since then it's recognized to be the most popular anthology ever published. To mark the 150th anniversary of its original publication, this facsimile reproduction of the 1861 edition features a specially-commissioned Foreword by Carol Ann Duffy (the current Poet Laureate) which celebrates its heritage and affection in the hearts of poetry lovers worldwide.

FRANCIS TURNER PALGRAVE was born in 1824 and Educated at Charterhouse and Balliol College, Oxford, UK. He was Professor of Poetry at Oxford from 1885-1895, UK. A practising poet and friend of the poet laureate, Alfred Tennyson, he is best remembered for this famous anthology. He died in 1897.
