The Collected Poems of Richard Francis Towndrow

An anthology of Victorian poetry

Richard Francis Towndrow was a noted Victorian entomologist and botanist, and the senior member and at one time President of Malvern Field Club. He held an international honour as an Associate of the exclusive Linean Society, and published three books containing a collection of poems. 


This new and unrivalled collection of his poetry predominantly contains poems from the published volumes “A Life, Love and other poems” (1889) and “A Garden and other poems” (1892), as well as those that were never released within a book or published individually.


This book has been painstakingly created from original books and handwritten manuscripts, and as such is a high-quality, definitive compilation of the man’s work.
