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: London: printed for J. and A. Arch, 1798, 1798. Octavo. Contemporary spotted full calf by Bedford, rebacked, spine gilt ruled in compartments with a red morocco title label, sides bordered with a double gilt rule, all edges gilt, gilt-rolled turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Housed in a dark brown cloth solander box. Illustrated 19th-century bookplate of California pianist Nellie Joseph (graduate with honours from the famous Stuttgart Conservatory). A few small scratches to the calf, minor rubbing to extremities, internally clean, a very good copy indeed. With the errata leaf but without the advertisements leaf. First edition, the London issue as usual, following the unobtainable Bristol issue of the same year (listed by Healey in 13 copies, of which none are thought to remain in private hands). This is the earliest obtainable edition of the collection of poems which inaugurated the romantic movement in English literature and poetry, and one of the most celebrated of all collaborative literary works. The London issue differs from the Bristol issue only in the title page. A case can also be made that this was the first published issue: the Bristol issue was prepared in anticipation of publication by Longmans, an event which never materialized, leading Dorothy Wordsworth to write in September 1798 that the book had been "printed, not published", since there was no publisher until Cottle found Arch and Wordsworth found Johnson at about the same time. See also D. F. Foxon, "The Printing of Lyrical Ballads, 1798", in The Library, Fifth Series, Vol. IX, No. 4, December 1953. Though not credited, Coleridge contributed "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner," "The Foster-Mother's Tale," "The Nightingale", and "The Dungeon." Wordsworth contributed most of the poems, drawing on a huge creative burst in the spring and summer of 1798, which included "Lines Written a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey."

Item Description: Reynal & Hitchcock, New York, 1946. Hardcover. Inscribed to Surrealist Peter Blume byCalder, Malcolm Cowley, and Robert Penn Warren. 260 x 191 mm (10 1/4 x 7 1/2"). 4 p.l., 148 pp. Publisher's red cloth, in the original pictorial dust jacket. In a black buckram solander box with a red morocco label on the spine. With 29 black and white illustrations by Calder. WITH THREE IMPORTANT INSCRIPTIONS TO THE NEW YORK ARTIST PETER BLUME AND HIS WIFE EBIE--BY THE ILLUSTRATOR CALDER (who spells "Blume" with a "B" that is formed by two petals from a flower he's drawn), BY THE DEDICATEE, MALCOLM COWLEY, AND BY ROBERT PENN WARREN, the author of the essay on "Mariner" printed in this volume. Dust jacket with vertical abrasion on back panel and with many very small chips around the edges, cloth covers a little soiled, spine a bit faded, but the binding solid, the jacket certainly very good, and a fine copy internally. This is an obviously very special copy of the great Coleridge poem, inscribed to the noted Surrealist artist and his wife by three major figures in 20th century American culture: the artist Calder (1898-1976), whose stark Modernist drawings illuminate the tale; poet laureate Warren (1905-89), who contributes an acclaimed critical essay on the text here; and literary critic Cowley (1898-1989), who memorialized the Lost Generation of American expatriate writers in Paris in his book "Exile's Return." The former owners, Peter and Ebie Blume, were part of the artistic community that settled in Connecticut after the Second World War, and the four principals here--of a similar age and located in the same general area--were good friends. Russian-born Peter Blume (1906-92) and his wife (referred to by Cowley as "Peternebie") devoted their lives to his work and to their home and garden in Sherman, Connecticut. Calder's affectionate inscription (written when he was admittedly tipsy) reads, "with much love / to Peter & Ebie / Blume / from Sandy, / (in a slightly punctured condition) / Xmas 1950." Warren has written below it: "To Peter and Ebie -- all love and thanks / for the privilege of writing this fact[?] here-- / Red / April 24, 1985." Cowley, who served as Peter's best man at his wedding to Ebie, has written beneath the Calder portrait of himself and the dedication ("For Malcolm Cowley"): "No, mo[re?], for Peter and Ebie, / Malcolm, April 1985." This remark would seem to suggest that it was the last one made and that there would simply be "no mo" inscriptions logically left to be written by anyone. It is of particular interest that Warren and Cowley have signed the Blumes' volume some 35 years after Calder did and nine years after the latter's death; it is easy to conjure up an evening's conversation that would have featured reminiscences of the departed artist and speculate that perhaps such memories led to the appended inscriptions.

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

Poems Chosen out of the Works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge. [Hammersmith: Sold by William Morris at the Kelmscott Press, 1896].One of 300 paper copies, out of a total edition of 308 copies. Octavo. ii, 100 pp. Printed in red and black in Golden type. Decorative borders and initials. Edited by F.S. Ellis.Original full limp vellum with blue silk ties. Spine lettered in gilt. A fine copy. Housed in a gray cloth slipcase."As to the Coleridge-Keats question, you don't quite understand the position I think. Keats was a great poet who sometimes nodded: we don't want to make a selection of his works. 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. Christabel only just comes in because the detail is fine; but nothing a hair's breadth worse must be admitted. There is absolutely no difficulty in choosing, because the difference between his poetry and his drivel is so striking" (William Morris to F.S. Ellis - undated letter).Clark Library, Kelmscott and Doves, p. 44-45. Peterson A38. Ransom, Private Presses, p. 329, no. 38. Sparling 38. Tomkinson, p. 117, no. 38. Bookseller Inventory # 01309

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 [and] Paris Doré Gallery, Hamilton, Adams and Co. [and] Librairie Hachette 1877 [and] 1876, 1877. 2 separate works bound into one volume. Extremely early printings of each volume. Each work with its own frontispiece, engraved vignette title-page and two other vignettes as chapter headpieces and both sets with the 38 full-page engraved plates by Gustave Doré, one set with the captions in French, one set with the captions in English, a total of 80 engraved plates and two vignette headpieces. Large folio (495 x 370 mm), in a very impressive French contemporary binding of three-quarter scarlet morocco over black and red marbled boards, the extra large corner pieces triple ruled in gilt, the spine with six compartments between tall, gilt ruled raised bands, one compartment gilt ruled and lettered, the others with a triple gilt ruled geometric framework, marbled end-leaves and t.e.g. Two engraved title-pages and frontispieces, 14 pp.; 1-14 pp., [and two sets of 38 plates each]. An exceptionally beautiful copy of both works, fresh, clean and solid and bound together in a fine binding of gentleman’s taste, all beautifully preserved and in very fine order. This is a beautiful book in especially nice condition and, in BOTH languageS it remains one of Dore’s most elusive titles. This beautifully bound set includes both the English and French edition of Coleridge’s masterwork and two full sets of the huge and impressive engraved plates of Doré. Coleridge’s RIME OF THE ANCIENT MARINER was a signal shift to modern poetry and the beginning of British Romantic literature. Its dark and brooding themes, most likely inspired by James Cook's second voyage of exploration, provided the perfect vehicle for Gustave Doré to employ his signature use of darkness and light to produce what is surely one of the most amazing illustrated books of the period.

Item Description: John Murray, London, 1816. Tall octavo; text clean and bright, edges trimmed slightly; fine copy in full tan calf, gilt, by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. In Xanadu. A beautiful copy of this important book: first edition, with the half-title but without the advertisement leaves.'Coleridge alone among English writers is in the front rank at once as poet, as critic and as philosopher' (DNB). His reputation rests partly on his efforts to represent the supernatural in verse; the centrepiece of this slim volume is certainly Kubla Khan, which famously is reputed to have come to the poet in an opium dream. Drenched in erotic imagery, it is a hymn to creativity and the Orient. This is one of his most important poems and it neatly illustrates the guiding principles of his poetry: that it be 'simple, sensuous, passionate'. Christabel and The Pains of Sleep round out the volume. Bookseller Inventory # 3301691

Item Description: A. and W. Galignani. Paris. 1829, 1829. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION of this collection. 8vo. (9.7 x 6 inches). This volume constitutes the first collected edition of Keats and only the second collected works of Coleridge & Shelley (although only volume 1, issued in 5 parts, of the 1826 edition of Shelley's works was issued and the edition was not completed) and contains works published here for the first time from all three poets. ---- Engraved frontispiece, with portraits of the three poets, by J. T. Wedgewood, printed on india paper and mounted onto a blank leaf. 6 pp of publishers adverts, half-title, frontis - with original tissue guard intact, title page, publishers note leaf, xi, [1], 225, [1], xi, [1], 275, [1], vii, [1], 75 pp. Text printed in double column. Most pages affected by foxing to a greater or lesser degree. Neat previous owners name (Ynyr Burges -- John Ynyr Burges, M.A, was the high Sherrif of County Tyrone, Ireland, from 1929), place and date (Naples, 1832) on the front free endpaper. A tall and untrimmed copy in original publishers grey paper covered boards with printed paper label to the spine. Chipping and rubbing to the edges and spine. The label is complete and although the paper has darkened it is still perfectly readable. Each poets work is preceded by a short life of the author. The memoir of Keats is by Leigh Hunt. Although Keats' literary executor, Charles Armitage Brown disliked Hunt's portrayal of his friend, his own account of Keats life was not ready in time for this edition and would not see publication for another 108 years in 1937. He did, however send some unpublished poems in his possession for inclusion in the volume. The memoir of Shelley was written by Mary Shelley, who also helped the publication of this edition by allowing the publisher access to his papers. Although this volume was published by the Galignanis in Paris, avoiding the British copyright and meaning no royalties would be due, they did have the co-operation of family members and literary friends of all three poets when assembling this impressive volume.

Item Description: London George G. Harrap 1915, 1915. The first edition in the publisher’s best binding. Profusely illustrated throughout by Willy Pogany, including 20 tipped-in color plates. A richly colored title page by Pogany begins this enchanting classic. With exquisitely detailed pages of intricately woven text and illustrations, enclosed in ornate borders. 4to, bound in the original dark-tan calf with finely tooled pictorial designs in gilt and colours on the upper cover and spine. [178] pp. A fine copy of this book in the beautiful presentation binding. The interior is virtually flawless and the binding is very handsome and beautifully preserved with virtually no evidence of use or age. A SUPERIOR COPY OF THIS GREAT BOOK. One of the most beautiful and decorative books of the period. The binding is quite attractive, the half-title is elaborately printed in gold, red and green; the title-page is a Morris-esque pastiche printed in gold, grey, red, black, purple, green, and yellow; the text is printed in an elaborate script within various woodcut borders, with various pictorial backgrounds in either light gray or green, sometimes accompanied by a vignette illustration. There are, in addition to the color plates, roughly ten full-page illustrations in black and either green or gray; and the pages that have no text or illustrations are filled with decorative elements in various styles and colors. One is reminded of the illuminated manuscripts of Sangorski and Sutcliffe and the amount of decoration on each page of their creations. This is certainly a tour de force by Pogany.

Item Description: Folio Society, 2003. Designer binding by Japanese artist/binder, Yuko Matsuno, of Samuel Taylor Coleridge selected poems published by the Folio Society in 2003, with wood engravings by Miriam MacGregor. The binding received a Highly Commended Certificate (UK Antiquarian Booksellers Association - Bookbinding Competition, 2004). Sewn on unsupported link stitch and contnuous board attachment with secondary sewing; bound in dark blue goatskin with hand-dyed blue goatskin onlays; doublures, endpapers and edges hand-drawn with silver ink. Contained with a black goatskin and Japanese paper chemise with black goatskin onlays, and contained in a white solander box. There is some bubbling on the blue paper, reverse side of free-end paper, but otherwise book is as new. Yuko Matsuno writes of the binding: " I decided to use hand-dyed blue goatskin leather because I was inspired by one of Coleridge's poems, 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner'. There are ice and water-snakes in the poem so I tried expressing cracks in the ice together with a snake-like shape on the binding by closely onlaying about 500 small pieces of hand-dyed lather. I feel that it worked successfully.". Bookseller Inventory # 5338
