Item Description: London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, 1820. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. First edition, with half-title and publisher's advertisements present. Original publisher's brown cloth and brown paper boards, with white paper label to the spine, lettered in black. Some wear to the extremities, mostly to spine with some splitting to the upper spine and a few small stains to the covers; bookplate to front pastedown, some scattered spots, otherwise a clean copy free of any repairs or restoration. An attractive example of a completely unsophosticated copy in the extremely scarce publisher boards. Keats' most popular collection of poetry, Lamia, Isabella, the Eve of St. Agnes is seldom found in the original publisher's boards. A scarce title to begin with, copies are often found in contemporary or modern fine bindings and are typically lacking the half-title leaf and eight pages of publisher's terminal advertisements. This copy has both the ads and the half-title and is entirely free of repairs or restorations. Lamia, Isabella, the Eve of St Agnes is Keats' third and final volume of poetry. In addition to the title narrative poems, it included Keats' renowned odes, including "Ode to A Nightingale," "Ode on a Grecian Urn," "Ode on Melancholy," "Ode to Psyche," and "To Autumn," among others. Widely considered his best and most acclaimed work, these odes are, as the Encyclpaedia Britannica proclaims, "Keats' most distinctive poetic achievement." Additionally, this volume includes the unfinished "Hyperion, a Fragment," which Keats, still discouraged by the negative critical reviews of Poems (1817) and Endymion (1818), was hesitant to publish and only agreed to include it in this volume at the insistence of his publishers. Notably, Keats produced these poems, widely considered his best and most acclaimed work, during the most turbulent period of his short life. In 1819, Keats mourned the loss of his brother Thomas and grew increasingly depressed as a result of his waning health coinciding with the waxing of his love for Fanny Brawn. Still, Keats was able to harness the emotions of this period to produce some of his most powerful verse and securing his status as one of the leading poets of the Romantic period.

Item Description: Joh. Enschede for Halcyon Press / A.A.M. Stols, Maastricht, Brussels and London, 1930. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: near fine. John Buckland Wright (illustrator). First edition. One of 16 extra-illustrated copies (16 full-page illustrations, the regular edition has 11) on pearl-white imperial Japanese vellum w. 3 extra suites of the portrait and the plates: one on pearl-white imperial Japanese vellum, one on Japanese vellum, and one on Dutch Pannekoek paper with the watermark "The Halcyon Press A.A.M. Stols Maastricht". Wright has signed every extra image in full (48 total). Beautifully bound (original binding) by Louis Malcorps (signed) in cherry Niger morocco. Wright's image of a female nude blocked in gold on the upper cover. Contents fine, binding near fine (tiny 1/16 inch nick in top gutter), spine just a touch lighter than the boards. A very beautiful binding. This copy comes with a small portfolio containing the original prospectus and 3 rejected proofs of the plates, signed and/or annotated in pencil by Buckland Wright. Note that the colophon calls for five rejects. These rejects are inferior strikes on inferior paper of the final-state plates, not variant images, so not very interesting either way. The entire production is housed in a custom morocco-edged slipcase with only minor shelfwear. The pearl-white Japanese vellum plates are incredibly vivid, the best strikes of any John Buckland Wright images that I have seen. Reid A1(b). Bookseller Inventory # 3945

Item Description: Martin Secker & Warburg Ltd, London, 1971. Hardback. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. This fine unmarked copy is bound in cloth covered boards with bright gilt titling to the spine, tight, white, bright and square. The price clipped dust wrapper is in very good condition and has now been covered in clear removable protective film. International postal rates are calculated on a book weighing 1 Kilo, in cases where the book weighs less then postage will be reduced accordingly. Where the book weighs more than 1 Kilo increased charges will be quoted. This biography was written only a few years after Dorothy Parker's death and is based on accounts of people who actually knew her, understood her unique personality and loved her. It is very well written and it is also very honest and informative about her "life and times", the happy and the unhappy moments of her life, the great poverty and the great riches, her New York years, but also those spent in Hollywood. Parker once said that she did not care what people would write about her as long as it was not the truth. The author has not taken her advice, in his book he perfectly captures the moods of the enigma that Dorothy Parker was, and the flavour of the twenties and thirties in this remarkable book.

Item Description: Reeves and Turner, London, 1878. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Hardcover. First Edition. Author's presentation copy, inscribed "W.M. Rossetti with H. Buxton Forman's kind regards 1 Feb '78." Beneath the inscription is the ownership inscription of Mary E. Madox Rossetti, recording her inheritance of the book from her father. The connections between Buxton Forman, editor of the Romantics, bibliophile, and (with Thomas J. Wise and alone) literary forger and the Rossettis are many and complicated. Forman began by writing positive critical comment on Dante Gabriel Rossetti in 1869, leading to acquaintance with the painter-poet and then to a close friendship with William Michael, himself an editor of Keats, Blake, and Shelley, that lasted until their deaths. Over time, William Rossetti sold and gave Forman much Rossetti material, but he resisted authenticating the Wise-Forman forgeries of his brother's work. Bound in the original navy blue cloth boards with gilt title to spine. It has been restored with the repair visible along both hinges. There is a repaired short closed tear to the cloth along the front hinge. Rubbing to gilt on spine and large black ink stain to front cover and margins of several pages. As the cloth is a deep navy blue, the black stain is not particularly visible on the cover. Offsetting to verso of signature page from a laid in newspaper clipping relating to Keats. Includes three illustrations: a portrait of Keats, silhouette of Fanny Browne, and facsimile of letter XXVII. From the collection of Stuart B. Schimmel. 128 pages plus 12 pages of advertisements.

Item Description: London : Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner and Co., 1898. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. This edition of Keats is an astonishing example of 1890s art deco book design, illustrated and decorated by the Scottish artist, engraver and book illustrator William Brown Macdougall (1868-1936). A collaborator with Aubrey Beardsley and a member of the New English Art Club, Macdougall published something like a dozen handsomely designed and engraved books, often in collaboration with his wife Margaret Armour. His edition of Isabella consists of richly-designed floral patterned borders surrounding the text of Keats' poem. There are 9 engraved plates. The paper used is untrimmed and unpaginated. What makes this edition UNIQUE is that it was printed at Macdougall's private press in Hertfordshire, in a limited edition of 10, of which this is number 3. There is an engraved Christmas presentation card tipped in, with Macdougall's hand-written notes about the occasion of this edition. This is a unique copy of Macdougall's work as a book designer and illustrator, with brown boards, blind-stamped on the top board and spine in a floral design in gilt. No dust jacket as published. There is weakening to the cloth at the top of the hinge, of two and a half inches, but the spine is not detached. The interior of the book is as bright and clean and stunning as the day it was printed. Bookseller Inventory # A2547

T. Wedgewood, printed on india paper and mounted onto a blank leaf.; 6 pp of publishers adverts, half-title, frontis , title page, publishers note leaf, xi, [1], 225, [1], xi, [1], 275, [1], vii, [1], 75 pp.; text printed in double column; chipping and rubbing to the edges and spine, head and tail of spine chipped, corners peeling; This volume constitutes the first collected edition of Keats and only the second collected works of Coleridge & Shelley (although only volume 1, issued in 5 parts, of the 1826 edition of Shelley's works was issued and the edition was not completed) and contains works published here for the first time from all three poets. Each poets work is preceded by a short life of the author. The memoir of Keats is by Leigh Hunt. Although Keats' literary executor, Charles Armitage Brown disliked Hunt's portrayal of his friend, his own account of Keats life was not ready in time for this edition and would not see publication for another 108 years in 1937. He did, however send some unpublished poems in his possession for inclusion in the volume. The memoir of Shelley was written by Mary Shelley, who also helped the publication of this edition by allowing the publisher access to his papers. Although this volume was published by the Galignanis in Paris, avoiding the British copyright and meaning no royalties would be due, they did have the co-operation of family members and literary friends of all three poets when assembling this impressive volume.; shelved case 0.
