About this Item

Octavo. XII, [4], 404, [4]pp (Advertisement for books published by Taylor and Hessey). Uncut. Modern grey and blue paper covered boards, with typed title label pasted to spine. Modern endpapers. Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) was an English poet, literary critic and philosopher who, with his friend William Wordsworth, was a founder of the Romantic Movement in England and a member of the Lake Poets.This first edition of "Aids to Reflection: is a collection of moral and religious aphorisms, with commentaries. While these are not sequentially connected, they are yet so arranged as to illustrate the author's purpose, to address his thought to the unspiritual but reflecting mind of the supposed pilgrim, who is led from worldly-mindedness to the acceptance of spiritual religion. "Coleridge takes up the argument on the pilgrim's (imputed) principles of worldly calculation. Beginning with religion as Prudence, resultant from the sense and sensuous understanding, he ascends to the ground of morality, as inspired by the heart and conscience, and finally to Spiritual Religion, as presented by reason and the will." (For more information, see C.D. Warner, et al., comp. "The Library of the World's Best Literature: An Anthology in Thirty Volumes (1917)).Binding sunned along edges. Previous owner's gift inscription at upper margin of title page, and signed Wm. Cowdell, 1878. Sporadic previous owner's annotations and underlining throughout. Minor and sporadic foxing throughout. Some minor to moderate water-staining from page 350 on. Binding in overall good, interior in good- to good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 41378
