Handsomely bound by Zaehnsdorf.Hartley Coleridge (1796-1849) was the eldest son of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and a respected poet in his own right. This collection was intended to be a definitive collection of his poetry, and was first published in 1851 It was the copy of Sara Coleridge, Hartley s sister. Her signature, partially cropped by the binder, is dated "Jan y 12, 185[2]." Beneath that signature is the signature of Sara s daughter Edith Coleridge, dated "Nov. 185[2]." Edith was herself a writer and edited her mother s memoirs. There is some marginalia written in what appears to be Sara s hand. Accompanying this set is a letter dated Oct. 30, 1934, to "Mr. Coleridge" from R.C. Bald, a Coleridge scholar who had organized a Samuel Taylor Coleridge Centenary Exhibition earlier that same year. He describes his discovery of this volume at a bookstore, and he presents it as a gift to this Coleridge descendant. Scattered foxing to preliminary and final leaves, spines uniformly toned. A handsome, near-fine copy, with an intriguing association. Bookseller Inventory # 42111
