Google dates this book as 1842, but that can't possibly be the case as the volume includes quotes in the beginning from 1845. This is not a first edition of the text from 1842, but a reprint made some 3-4 years later.

Page 298 - Saul and Jonathan were lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not divided : they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.
Page 26 - The hills Rock-ribbed and ancient as the sun ; the vales Stretching in pensive quietness between ; The venerable woods, rivers that move In majesty, and the complaining brooks That make the meadows green ; and poured round all Old ocean's gray and melancholy waste Are but the solemn decorations all Of the great tomb of man.
