In England, the news of Longfellowís death at Cambridge, Massachusetts, on March 24, 1882, was reported by the press not only extensively, but with expressions reflective also of the special regard that existed there for the poet and his works. It was within the context of this esteem and as a manifestation of it that less than five months after the poetís death, a movement was initiated in England to provide what would be an unprecedented tributeóa bust of Longfellow would be installed in that nationís most historic shrine and place of worship, Westminster Abbey. Lathem traces the history of the endeavor in this monograph published by the Maine Historical Society. Hardcover 90 Pages
