About this Item

Complete, in two volumes bound in one. First American edition. First U.K. edition published the same year by John Murray. Henry Nelson Coleridge (1798?1843), nephew of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, recorded some of his conversations with the great poet over the course of a number of years, later publishing, in 1835, "such parts as seem fit for present publication." He also wrote the preface, which contains a defense of his uncle against charges of plagiarism and a discourse on his conversation style and how his mind worked. There is a diagram on p. 25 of vol. 2, the only illustration. Publisher's advertisements in the back of vol. 2. 8vo. 2 vols. in 1.
