This pristine copy of Edmund Spenser's allegorical poem Colin Clouts
Come Home Again, once owned by the poet Frederick Locker-Lampson, came
to Columbia with the library of Jack Harris Samuels. Samuels received his
Masters in English and Comparative Literature at Columbia in 1940, and from then
until his sudden death in 1966 amassed a library of nearly three thousand first
editions covering over four centuries of English and American literature.
