About this Item

Large folio hardcover in decorated gray cloth boards and red cloth with gilt lettering and grey endpapers; b&w illustrations; unpaged. Very scarce: From rear endpaper: "Of this reproduction, lithographed by Charles R. Wood and Associates, of San Francisco, the edition is limited to 350 numbered copies only. Coleridge's peom with Doré's illustratiosn was first published in London, 1875, Paris, 1976-1877, and New York, 1877. The present repdorduction is a facsimile of a copy of a New York printing of 1884., except that the cover has been redisigned in a manner more in keeping with the present-day taste. The stock, Curtis Colophon, was selected because its finish and color closely resemble those of the copy reproduced. The black ink is neutral in tone and non-gloss, in conformity with the standards of the nineteenth century. THIS COPY IS NUMBER 352." 352 is handwritten in red ink. **A larger, heavy book. Extra shipping charges may apply.**. Near fine copy. Ex-library with call number written in white on lower spine, library card rear endpaper, and library bookplate on verso front endpaper with small "DISCARDED" stamp; very light rubbing to cloth corners at head and foot of spine, but no open fraying; gift inscription in pen on front endpaper; barely noticeable soiling to cover board; else excellent copy; pages and illustrations are clean, bright and free of marks and creases; binding is tight.
