A VERY HANDSOME AND FINELY BOUND COPY of Buxton Formanís highly important collection of Keats. The ten illustrations are lovely pre-Raphaelite plates and the seven portraits nicely round out the volume. A very pretty book, well suited to the content. A BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THIS FINE BOOK. Buxton Formanís highly important collection of Keats. With his scholarly notes and appendices. ĎIn this reissue of Keats's Writings no change has been made in the general arrangement, and only two words have been altered in the text of the poems.í "The whole of Keatsís known works in verse are included in this volume; and the foot-notes contain a large selection of variorum readings. Sixteen lines of THE EVE OF ST. MARK, found by the Editor in a Keats scrap-book lent to him by Mr. Frank Sabin, and given in the Introduction, have not been printed in any other edition." A definitive scholarly edition with annotations. Includes a chronology of Keatsí life and short biographical description of all the correspondents. To Harry Buxton Forman in the first place, and then to Sir Sidney colvin, is due also the credit of gathering and arranging the mass of Keatsí correspondence. Their collection was based on the latest published work of Forman, supplemented by the fruits of his subsequent research, as well as from other sources. He was the most renown of all Keats scholars.
