Item Description: Douglas Cleverdon, Bristol, 1929. Jones, David (illustrator). Quarto. 37pp., + (8)ff. plates. One of only ten copies in the most limited state, with two extra loose suites of engravings and an original signed pencil drawing housed in a portfolio inside the rear cover. Illustrated throughout with ten masterful engravings on copper, comprising eight full-page plates and two smaller images which serve as head- and tailpieces. The extra suite of prints contains fifteen proof engravings by Jones printed on cream Japon without the background tone, including the five engravings which were discarded and not used in the final version. There is also a full suite of the ten published copper engravings in the final state, printed on handmade paper with a light gray background tone. The original drawing is one of ten that Jones saved from the almost 200 sketches and working drawings that he made in preparation for the copper engraving; the rest were destroyed. The original drawing included is the third plate, titled "The Death Fires," and is remarkably close to the final version of the engraving, showing the ship in limbo upon the still sea, where "slimy things did crawl with legs." Bound in original vellum by Wood and London with the title in gilt on the spine. Slight bowing to covers, and two of the portfolio's flaps are starting to split. One of the few works executed by Jones with copper engravings, and one of his most stunning achievements. (See The Artist and the Book, 136). Bookseller Inventory # 25787

Item Description: T.N. Longman & O. Rees. 1800, 1800. FIRST EDITION, ?1st issue? Without half titles as issued. Vol. I with three tiny unobtrusive paper flaws at I1, K1, & L3. Contemp. half calf, spines with horizontal bands & devices in gilt, maroon leather labels; spines sl. darkened with sl. rubbing to extremities, but a v.g. well-preserved set. ESTC T146537. Wise (Two Lake Poets) pp6-8. Vol. I, The second edition; Vol. II FIRST EDITION, ?first issue? Includes The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, The Foster-Mother?s Tale, The Nightingale, The Dungeon & Love by Coleridge, who failed to complete Christabel for Vol. II. Wordsworth?s important Preface giving ?a systematic defence of the theory upon which the poems were written? first appears here - a preface he had been ?prevailed upon by Coleridge to write? Vol. II was issued without an edition statement, as most of the material contained was entirely new. Collated with John Edwin Wells, Lyrical Ballads 1800: Cancel Leaves (PMLA 53, March 1938). He suggests it is better to ?discard the term ?issue? in speaking of either of the volumes?, . as it is ?difficult to be positive regarding priority of states where variations between copies occur? He concludes that, of more than 90 volumes he has examined, ?no fixed combinations of the variants occur? This is his ?ordinary? copy of Vol. I, with p[v]/vi a cancel leaf. It was inserted in all but a very few copies, removing mention of the poem Christabel which Coleridge had not been able to finish in time for publication. Wells identifies two variants of the cancel leaf, identical in wording, but with either ?first? or ?First? on the first line of p[v]; this is the ?First? variant. Of the 44 copies of the first volume Wells examined, 16 had ?first? and 28 had ?First? The whole of signature I is also cancelled (Wells? State 3), with no stub or any sign of paste, and the correct spelling ?to? and ?been? on p137. Vol. II is also the ?ordinary? copy, with a 3-item errata on p[228] and fifteen lines of Michael omitted on p210. The poem was left incomplete in error, the printer not noticing the existence of the last fifteen lines of text which were written on a ?page by themselves? Cancel leaves were printed for pp209-210, completing the unfinished poem, but these appear to have been printed after the volume had been distributed and have only been recorded in a handful of copies. A similarly scarce errata leaf was printed, revised to give a list of 27 amendments. This copy of vol. II has the variants ?Oft I had heard .? and ?She dwelt on a wild Moor,? on p64; Wordsworth later revised these lines to read ?Oft had I heard .? and ?She dwelt on a wide Moor?.

Item Description: T. N. Longman And O. Rees, London, 1800. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. FIRST COMPLETE EDITION (comprising the second edition of the first volume, and the first edition, first issue of the second volume). The preferred edition, for the second edition of the first volume contains the first printing of Wordsworth's famous Preface, "the revolutionary manifesto of the romantic poets of the next generation" and perhaps the most influential work of literary theory in the English language (Printing and the Mind of Man 256). "To the first edition of Lyrical Ballads, published jointly with Coleridge in 1798, Wordsworth prefixed an 'Advertisement' which asserted that the major number of the poems were 'to be considered as experiments' to determine 'how far the language of conversation in the middle and lower classes of society is adapted to the purposes of poetic pleasure.' In the second, two-volume edition of 1800, Wordsworth. expanded the Advertisement into a Preface which justified the new poetry not as experiments, but as exemplifying the principles of all good poetry. The Preface deserves its reputation as a revolutionary manifesto about the nature of poetry. [It serves] not only as a turning point in English criticism but also as a central document in modern culture" (Norton Anthology of English Literature). In addition to the first appearance of the Preface, the second edition contains all the poems in the first edition plus one additional poem in the first volume, and the first printing of the forty-one new poems in the second volume. The poems in Lyrical Ballads proved to be extraordinarily influential, for "no other book of poems in English so plainly announces a new literary departure" (Norton). Lyrical Ballads includes some of the most famous poems in the English language: in the the first volume appears Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner", "The Foster-Mother's Tale", "The Nightingale", "The Dungeon", and Wordsworth's "Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey", "The Thorn", "The Idiot Boy", "Simon Lee, the Old Huntsman", and "Lines written in early spring"; the second volume added many of Wordsworth's most characteristic works such as the "Lucy Poems", "The Old Cumberland Beggar", "Michael, a Pastoral", and others. London: T. N. Longman and O. Rees, 1800. Small octavo, contemporary full calf with original red and green morocco labels. Two volumes. Housed in custom half-leather box. Evidence of bookplates removed on pastedowns. Light spotting to five leaves in volume two, otherwise text exceptionally clean; a few skillful repairs to bindings, minor surface imperfection (noticeable only up-close, at an angle) to board of volume II. A rare copy in handsome contemporary calf of one of the most important books in English literature. Bookseller Inventory # 132

Item Description: Boosey Sons/Rodwell & Martin, London, 1821. Hardcover. First Edition. Thin octavo (5-3/4" x 9-1/8") bound in contemporary blue boards with a tan cloth spine and corners, recently rebacked with a new sympathetic cloth spine; viii, 86, (2) pages including the half title, a frontispiece engraved portrait of Goethe, and the list of plates by Retsch with the errata printed on the verso. The First Edition of the FIRST COMPLETE ENGLISH TRANSLATION of the first part of Goethe's Tragedy of Faust. The anonymous translation was originally credited to George Soane, but literary scholarship revealed in 2007 that Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the poet of tormented guilt and of the demonic and the supernatural, was the actual translator. There are several editions of this book; the one with the accompanying plates was issued after this edition without plates. All editions are quite scarce, especially this one and especially when complete. Coleridge claimed that he "had never put pen to paper as a translator of Faust," but in an 1820 letter Goethe stated that Coleridge was well underway with this translation. Light to moderate foxing. Near Fine and quite scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 013785

For the second edition, a second volume of poems was added, with vol. I only designated ?second edition? For the next edition, 1802, the one here presented, vol. I was thus the ?third edition?, while vol. II was the ?second edition? In this edition Wordsworth further expanded the celebrated preface, as well as editing the poems in several places. One of Wordsworth?s poems was excised completely, as well as Coleridge?s ?The Dungeon?, reducing his contribution to just four pieces. The Argument to Ancient Mariner was also omitted. This copy has been augmented with the addition of 23 delicate silhouettes, cut from black paper and laid on to blanks, bound in at the end of each volume. These early images are unsigned, but each is accompanied by an ms. caption in a contemp. hand and page reference. Two silhouettes may have been excised (or never completed), as two text references appear without an accompanying image. Bookseller Inventory # 63863

Item Description: Penrith: printed and published by J. Brown. 1809-10, 1809. FIRST EDITION. Revenue stamps in each issue. Contemp. half red sheep, gilt spine, marbled boards. Wise 20. Parts 1-20, June 1 1809 - January 4 1810, and the 16pp ?supernumerary essay?, dated January 11, 1810. 336pp continuously paginated. Coleridge was responsible for almost the entirety of the publication, which was formed of essays and articles drawn from the author?s widespread knowledge of history, law, philosophy, politics, and literary criticism. Impressive in its breadth of subject matter, the publication was nonetheless inaccessible to many readers, and despite having over 500 subscribers, failed to attain financial viability. Publication ceased in spring 1810, though the work was considered important by Coleridge?s peers, and a second edition appeared in 1818. Bookseller Inventory # 65286

Item Description: London: printed for John Murray, by William Bulmer and Co., 1816, 1816. Octavo (220 x 120 mm). Later 19th-century ochre full morocco by J. B. Hawes, Cambridge, spine in compartments with raised bands, gilt titles end fleurons, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Some tanning to fore-edge and to endleaves but on the whole an internally clean copy, the binding slightly rubbed at the corners but generally in excellent condition. Half title, and 4 pages of publisher's advertisements at the rear. First edition, with the half title and advertisements, notably untrimmed in a signed later 19th-century binding. This publication prints for the first time three of Coleridge's very best poems, the gothic Christabel (which was written 1797-1800 but excluded from the 1800 edition of Lyrical Ballads on Wordsworth's advice and left unpublished until here), the lysergic Kubla Khan (accompanied by Coleridge's notorious recount of its composition one night after an opium influenced dream having read a work describing Xanadu, the summer palace of the Mongol ruler and Emperor of China), and The Pains of Sleep (considered a description of opium withdrawal symptoms). The publisher's advertisements evince a good year for literature, with Murray publishing Byron's Siege of Corinth, Walter Scott's Field of Waterloo, Jane Austen's Emma, Leigh Hunt's Rimini, as well as John Malcolm's classic History of Persia. This copy is from the library (though without ownership mark) of Scottish publisher Alexander Macmillan (1818-1896), founder, with his older brother Daniel, of Macmillan & Co - J. B. Hawes were one of the Cambridge binderies used by Macmillan. Bookseller Inventory # 106620

Coleridge was apparently displeased with this first edition and rushed to get the second edition published. Lacks signed page, but still a scarce set. As WISE, iii, 1 notes, Dykes Campbell said of this edition, 'This must be a rare book. How much Coleridge was dissatisfied with the edition of 1828 is witnessed by the many alterations he made in preparing that of 1829.' Digital images available upon request.

Item Description: London: The Arcadia Press, 1972, 1972. Folio. Original half vellum, handmade "seaweed" paper boards, spine with gilt titles direct, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, green endpapers, calligraphic-style text printed in green and black on handmade seaweed paper, made using a process in which seaweed is pressed into the paper, reproducing with striking likeness the transluscent quality of submarine flora. With the original cream paper slipcase. Two tiny white specks to front free endpaper due to production flaw; slipcase with minor rubbing to extremities and light bowing to fore edges. A bright and fresh copy. With 10 tipped-in colour plates. Signed limited edition, number 86 of 110 copies signed by the illustrator Errol Le Cain, the calligrapher David A. Howells, and the paper maker Philip H. Rowson. The contrast of Le Cain's boldly colourful illustrations with the delicate quality of the pressed seaweed peppered throughout the text lends itself particularly well to the subject of Coleridge's epic poem.

Item Description: John Murray, London, 1816. Tall octavo, bound with the half-title but without the advertisement leaves; edges slightly trimmed and top-edge gilt; fine in full tan calf by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. First edition: a beautiful copy of this important book, printing 'Kubla Khan' (arguably the most famous poem in the English language) and 'Christabel', widely considered Coleridge's most accomplished poetic composition.With characteristic self-deprecation, Coleridge states in his preface to 'Christabel' that 'my poetic powers have been, till very lately, in a state of suspended animation' and that the poem would have far better if he wrote it as a younger man. Likewise, the oft-quoted preface to 'Kubla Khan' laments the poverty of the poet faced with the mercurial intensity of an opium dream. Elsewhere Coleridge propounded the guiding paradigms of effective romantic poetry - that it be 'simple, sensuous, passionate' - aspirations powerfully manifest in the compositions published here for the first time.

Item Description: London: Rest Fenner, 1817, 1817. 2 volumes, octavo (210 × 128 mm). Later 19th-century ochre half morocco by J. B. Hawes of Cambridge, spines in compartments with raised bands and gilt titles and fleurons, marbled sides, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Spines very slightly tanned, tiny nicks to corners, some light spots to the leather of volume one, occasional spotting within, very good condition indeed. Half titles in both volumes and 3 pages of publisher's advertisements at the rear of volume two. First edition, with the half titles and advertisements, notably untrimmed in a signed later 19th-century binding, of Coleridge's autobiography, a monument to the Romantic movement and Coleridge's role in it, in which literary criticism and philosophy are inextricable from biography. In Biographica Literary, which is utterly characteristic of him in its fragmentary and digressive form, Coleridge recounts his friendship with Southey and Wordsworth, describes the important influences on his personal philosophical development (and, it should be inferred, through him to the the rest of the English Romantic scene) of early German philosophers such as Kant, Fichte and Schelling, while offering searching criticisms of Wordsworth's poems and making his famous distinction between 'fancy' and 'imagination', expressing the difference between a mechanical making and a creative artistic power linked to the divine. The second volume includes a detailed criticism of the social theory of the preface to Lyrical Ballads, to which he himself had contributed. This copy is from the library (though without ownership mark) of Scottish publisher Alexander Macmillan (1818-1896), founder, with his older brother Daniel, of Macmillan & Co - J. B. Hawes were one of the Cambridge binderies used by Macmillan. Wise 40. Bookseller Inventory # 106621

Item Description: Kelmscott Press, Hammersmith, 1896. ONE OF 300 COPIES. 210 x 145 mm. (8 1/4 x 6 3/4"). 2 p.l., 100 pp.Edited by F. S. Ellis. ONE OF 300 COPIES. Original limp vellum, gilt titled spine, four silk ties (one with amateur repair, one partly torn away), last third of the leaves UNOPENED. In a gray cloth clamshell box backed with blue calf. Very elaborate woodcut title and border around first page of text, handsome woodcut initials throughout, eight very pleasing three-quarter woodcut borders of vines, leaves, and buds. Printed in red and black. Peterson A-38; Sparling 38; Tomkinson, p. 117. Vellum lightly soiled and tending to splay, but a very fine copy internally, especially clean and fresh, and with deep impressions of the type. This selection of poems by Samuel Taylor Coleridge is the last of the Kelmscott series of English poets, which included Tennyson's "Maud" and works of Rossetti, Keats, Shelley, and Herrick. Morris felt that Coleridge's output was uneven but that his best poems were of great value. Writing to editor F. S. Ellis, he said, "Coleridge was a muddle-brained metaphysician, who by some strange freak of fortune turned out a few real poems amongst the dreary flood of inanity which was his wont. It is these real poems only that must be selected, or we burden the world with another useless book." The 13 poems that made the cut here include "Kubla Khan," "Rime of the Ancient Mariner," "Christabel," and "Love." Our previous owner evidently agreed with Morris' tepid assessment of Coleridge, leaving much of the book unopened--and, happily for us, entirely undisturbed as a consequence.
