Now known mainly as the publisher of Arrowsmith’s Bristol Channel Tide Table, Arrowsmith of Bristol printed a number of works for Symonds, including publicly published verse, and pamplets of poetry for circulation to friends and correspondants1 Though the pamphlets were intended for a select audience, Symonds told Edward Clifford that he had omitted several favoured poems since “they might astonish Mr Arrowsmith too much.”2)
