About this Item

This SIGNED edition, printed on English hand-made paper, is limited to nine hundred and fifty copies. Of these seven hundred and fifty numbered copies are reserved for sale in the United States and one hundred and fifty for sale in England. The remaining fifty are for presentation only. This is copy #391. To quote the author of the extensive introduction and very fine explanation (in Mr. Hotson opinion) of Shelley's letters to his wife Harriet Westbrook, between 1814 and 1816, shortly before Harriet took her own life." So much controversial ink, has been poured out on Shelley's marital difficulties that one would be glad to let the subject rest. The reader who cares enough for truth . and scanned the original evidence for themselves will have to form their own opinion." It is agreed that Shelley shares some of the blame, not so much for separating from Harriet, but by marrying her at such a young age (19). The reader will agree that such blame, . has been long outweighed, in any fair mind, by the nobility, constancy and generosity of his life taken as a whole. Book is in fine condition with fine blue cloth bound over boards with gilt lettering o spine and front cover. First and last free end papers are deeply tanned and there is a nice bookplate from a former owner on front paste down. The slim volume is a fine addition to the serious Shelley collector's library.
