About this Item

Octavo. 60pp. First edition, complete with half title. Hellas was released only three months before Shelley's death by drowning in the Bay of Spezzia at age thirty, and was the last poem published during his brief life. Inspired by the Greek battle for independence from the Ottoman Empire during the fall of 1821, Shelley dedicates the poem to Greek statesman Prince Alexander Mavrocordato. This copy has been beautifully rebound by Rivière and Son in gilt-stamped crushed blue morocco with cream moiré silk endpapers. A.e.g. With the bookplate of Willis Vickery, distinguished Cleveland lawyer and jurist. Spine darkened, and occasional light pencil marking, otherwise fine. Bookseller Inventory # 26000
