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

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.

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: Wordsworth Poetry Library, Hertfordshire, 2003. Softcover. Book Condition: gut. First Edition. Illustrierte Broschur in gutem Erhaltungszustand. (good condition). William Wordsworth (* 7. April 1770 in Cockermouth, Großbritannien; 23. April 1850 in Rydal Mount, Großbritannien) war ein britischer Dichter und führendes Mitglied der englischen Romantikbewegung, die er 1798 durch die zusammen mit Samuel Taylor Coleridge verfassten Lyrical Ballads (Lyrische Gedichte) initiierte. Als sein Meisterwerk gilt das frühe autobiografische Gedicht The Prelude (Präludium). Samuel Taylor Coleridge(* 21. Oktober 1772 in Ottery St Mary, Devon; 25. Juli 1834 in Highgate, London) war ein englischer Dichter der Romantik, Kritiker und Philosoph. Zusammen mit William Wordsworth und Robert Southey gehörte er den sogenannten Lake Poets an. Sein bekanntestes Werk ist die Ballade The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (dt. Ballade vom alten Seemann oder Der alte Matrose) veröffentlicht 1798 in der gemeinsam mit Wordsworth herausgegebenen Sammlung Lyrical Ballads, die nach traditioneller Auffassung die englische Romantik begründete. Coleridge prägte die Formel von der willentlichen Aussetzung der Ungläubigkeit. (wikipedia) In englischer Sprache. XXXIX, 312 pages. 8°. Bookseller Inventory # BN14841
