When I was King and Other Verses


Henry Lawson

MANY of the verses in this volume appeared originally in the SYDNEY Bulletin, others in the Daily Telegraph, Town and Country Journal, Evening News, World’s News, Australian Star, Amateur Gardener, and KALGOORLIE Sun, while eleven are reprinted from The Children of the Bush, published by Messrs. Methuen and Co., London.

The author acknowledges the courteous permission of the publishers of the foregoing to include the respective pieces here. Out of deference to repeated requests, one of the pieces omitted from the later editions of When the World was Wide is here restored to print.
