Many of the illustrations in this edition of Gray's Elegy are from sketches taken at STOKE POGIS, the scene of the poem, by Mr. FENN, and all of them were made especially for this edition.
"The ploughman homeward plods his weary way"
"The moping Owl does to the Moon complain"
"Beneath those rugged elms, that yew tree's shade"
"The breezy call of incense-breathing Morn"
"For them no more the blazing hearth shall burn, or busy housewife
"Their furrow oft the stubborn glebe has broke "
"How jocund did they drive their team a-field".
“The boast of heraldry, the pomp of power".
