Oxford: Oxford Printed for the Subscribers , 1897. Printed for a list of 23 subscribers. William Johnson Cory (1823-1892), one of the precursors of the Uranian Poets, was master at Eton from 1845 to 1872. He had "not only the superficial renown of being a born teacher, but a less palatable, deeper- seated reputation of a wayward personality who 'was apt to make favourites'. Despite his meticulous preparation of lessons, his liberal ideas on education and his sensible and far-sighted tenet that the French language should be as compulsory as Latin in the curriculum, he was politely but firmly asked to resign." Cory's poems, initially published at the author's expense in 1858 and 1877, were collected in a single volume in 1891. It was in this form that his poetry became known to the Uranian Poets, prominent among which were several of his former pupils."
