About this Item: J. & A. Arch, 1798; T. N. Longman and O. Rees, London, 1800. 175 x 105 mm. (6 3/4 x 4 1/8"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION, Second (London) Issue of first volume; FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE of the second volume (p. 209 with last word of footnote in the middle of the page; p. 210 with 10 lines only; p. 211 with 19 lines, ending with "he thought again"; p. 212 with 19 lines, beginning with "And his heart fail'd him"). LOVELY CRIMSON CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT, BY FRANCIS BEDFORD (stamp-signed on front turn-ins), covers with French fillet border, raised bands, spine compartments with distinctive urn-and-bird centerpiece surrounded by small tools, leafy cornerpieces, gilt titling, densely gilt turn-ins, dark green endpapers, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed. Front pastedowns with engraved bookplate of Harold Greenhill; from the collection of Bradley Martin (his sale, Sotheby's New York, 1 May 1990, lot 3333). Ashley VIII, pp.5-8; Hayward 202 (Bristol imprint); Grolier English 66; PMM 256 (the second edition, the "Manifesto of the Romantic Movement''); Rothschild 2603, 2604. Short, faint scratch to one board (well-masked by dye), half a dozen leaves with expert paper repairs to short marginal tears (well away from text), a couple of faint spots of foxing, otherwise A VERY FINE SET, clean, bright, and as amply margined as possible, in sparkling bindings. This is a rarely seen set of the two first editions often described as the inaugural event of the Romantic period. The printing of "Lyrical Ballads" constituted an experiment for the two young poets (Wordsworth was 28, Coleridge 26) in the modification of the traditional artificial verse styles in order to capture forceful sincerity and elemental human emotions. Their radical purpose was nothing short of the reformation of poetry by deposing an artificial literary tradition and substituting a new poetics, more in keeping with normal contemporary speech patterns. As Wordsworth explains in the preface to the second edition of 1800, "The principal object, then, which I proposed to myself in these poems was to choose incidents and situations from common life, and to relate or describe them, throughout, as far as was possible, in a selection of language really used by men; and, at the same time, to throw over them a certain colouring of imagination. . . . Low and rustic life was generally chosen, because in that condition, the essential passions of the heart find a better soil in which they can attain their maturity, are less under restraint, and speak a plainer and more emphatic language. . . . [In] that condition our elementary feelings co-exist in a state of greater simplicity . . . [and] the passions of men are incorporated with the beautiful and permanent forms of nature. . . . For all good poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings.'' Folk ballads, as "natural" poetry, formed their models for pieces that reveal a sense of lasting joy in nature and in experiences common to all humans. The volumes contain, among others, "Tintern Abbey," "Lines Written in Early Spring," "We Are Seven," "The Brothers," "Michael," and "The Ancyent Marinere," 10 stanzas of which appear only in this edition. Volume 1 is the second issue of the first edition, with London rather than Bristol identified as the place of pubication on the title page; there is one known and one hypothetical copy of the first issue. Additional issue points for these volumes are: Vol. I: p. 19 reads "Oft" in line 10, p. 204 reads "woods" (with the final "s" and comma) in line 15 and "thought" (with the final "t" and comma) in line 17; Vol. II: 01-2 are uncancelled, p. 64 reads "Oft had I" in line 1 and "wide Moor" in line 6, p. 83 has a comma after "last days" in line 6, p. 92 reads "He" (capitalized) in line 2, and p. 129 has "when they please" properly spaced in line 11. The second volume offered here was originally issued with a companion first volume that was virtually a reprint of the 1798 volume; as a result of this reissue, and the two-year gap before the publication of th.

Chapman-Abel Berland copy, with contemporary inscription and letter from E. H. Keasbury on the flyleaves, covers very slightly worn, otherwise an exceptionally fine unsophisticated copy. The R. W. Chapman-Abel Berland copy, with contemporary inscription and letter from E. H. Keasbury on the flyleaves, covers very slightly worn, otherwise an exceptionally fine unsophisticated copy Second edition of Lyrical Ballads, the first complete edition, being the second & best edition of Volume I & the first edition of Volume II; the first time the two volumes were issued together & the first appearance of Wordsworth's celebrated Preface. Printing & The Mind of Man 256. Hayward 202 (note). The second edition comprises all of the poems in the first edition of Volume I as issued in 1798 together with one additional poem ("Love"), Wordsworth's Preface, & an entirely new second volume with forty-one new poems. The present set has the following points: in Volume I, leaf [a]3 is cancelled, with line 1 recto reading "The First Volume"; leaves I3-4 are uncancelled; page 137 has "been" in line 9 & to in line 13; page 196 reads "agency" (instead of "agony") in line 14; in Volume II, leaves O1-2 & P2 are uncancelled; page 64 reads "Oft had I" in line 1 & "wide Moor" in line 6; page 83 has a comma after "last days" in line 6; page 92 reads "He" in line 2; page 129, line 11, has "when they please" normally but deterioratingly spread; O1-2 are uncancelled (p. 210 has ten lines, omitting fifteen lines of "Michael"), as well as the errata leaf P2 which had three corrections rather than twenty-seven. Ashley 8:6-9. Cornell/Healey 6-11. Printing and the Mind of Man 256. Wise 5. Tinker 2330-1. The importance of Wordsworth's Preface cannot be overestimated; in the words of Kenneth Johnston, Wordsworth's latest biographer, it is arguably the most influential document of literary theory in English. Considered conceited in its day, Wordsworth's Preface expressed the poet's re-evaluation of the nature & appropriate objects of poetry in light of his own experience. "Wordsworth was motivated by the Poet's duty to renew his entire culture, promulgating a theory of the creative imagination's role in improving human society . in terms of a theory of poetics: metrics, diction, and style." - The Hidden Wordsworth (Norton, 1998), pp. 738-739. Believing that the incidents of common life could provide inspiration & interest for a new kind of poetry & a new sensibility, Wordsworth stated most memorably that "all good poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings; . Poems to which any value can be attached, were never produced on any variety of subjects but by a man who being possessed of more than usual organic sensibility had also thought long and deeply. Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings; it takes its origin from emotions recollected in tranquility; the emotion is contemplated till by a species of reaction the tranquility gradually disappears, and an emotion, similar to that which was before the object of contemplation, is gradually produced, and does itself actually exist in the mind".

About this Item: T. N. Longman And O. Rees, London, 1800. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. FIRST COMPLETE EDITION (comprising the second edition of the first volume, and the first edition, first issue of the second volume). The preferred edition, for the second edition of the first volume contains the first printing of Wordsworth's famous Preface, "the revolutionary manifesto of the romantic poets of the next generation" and perhaps the most influential work of literary theory in the English language (Printing and the Mind of Man 256). "To the first edition of Lyrical Ballads, published jointly with Coleridge in 1798, Wordsworth prefixed an 'Advertisement' which asserted that the major number of the poems were 'to be considered as experiments' to determine 'how far the language of conversation in the middle and lower classes of society is adapted to the purposes of poetic pleasure.' In the second, two-volume edition of 1800, Wordsworth. expanded the Advertisement into a Preface which justified the new poetry not as experiments, but as exemplifying the principles of all good poetry. The Preface deserves its reputation as a revolutionary manifesto about the nature of poetry. [It serves] not only as a turning point in English criticism but also as a central document in modern culture" (Norton Anthology of English Literature). In addition to the first appearance of the Preface, the second edition contains all the poems in the first edition plus one additional poem in the first volume, and the first printing of the forty-one new poems in the second volume. The poems in Lyrical Ballads proved to be extraordinarily influential, for "no other book of poems in English so plainly announces a new literary departure" (Norton). Lyrical Ballads includes some of the most famous poems in the English language: in the the first volume appears Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner", "The Foster-Mother's Tale", "The Nightingale", "The Dungeon", and Wordsworth's "Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey", "The Thorn", "The Idiot Boy", "Simon Lee, the Old Huntsman", and "Lines written in early spring"; the second volume added many of Wordsworth's most characteristic works such as the "Lucy Poems", "The Old Cumberland Beggar", "Michael, a Pastoral", and others. London: T. N. Longman and O. Rees, 1800. Small octavo, contemporary full calf with original red and green morocco labels. Two volumes. Housed in custom half-leather box. Evidence of bookplates removed on pastedowns. Light spotting to five leaves in volume two, otherwise text exceptionally clean; a few skillful repairs to bindings, minor surface imperfection (noticeable only up-close, at an angle) to board of volume II. A rare copy in handsome contemporary calf of one of the most important books in English literature. Seller Inventory # 132

Scarce, though not as historically important as the 1800 edition, (see our ref. 8142), there have been fewer copies available. The 1802 edition of 'Lyrical Ballads' differs from the 1800 edition in the following ways: Coleridge contributed four poems only, 'The Dungeon' having been withdrawn. Wordsworth's 'A Character' was also omitted. The famous 'Preface' was considerably expanded, (64 pages in this edition compared to 46 pages in the 1800 edition), and many changes were introduced into the text of the Poems. Three poems were removed from vol. I and given new positions in vol. II. Finally Coleridge in this edition cancelled the 'Argument' to 'The Ancient Mariner'. Seller Inventory # 8141

Wordsworth (1770-1850) was known for his worship of nature, his early sympathy with democracy and the lives and common speech of the common people. He was one of the early leaders of the Romantic Poetics and was particularly interested instituting a reform in the language of poetic diction.

About this Item: Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, London, 1805. Leatherbound. Condition: Near fine. Fourth Edition. 2 vols.: lxiv, [2], 200, [4]; 248 p. 17 cm. Bound in leather with red and black spine labels. In marbled paper slipcase. Spines faded slightly. Signed by former owner on title page. A cornerstone of British Romantic poetry, these volumes complete the sequence that began with the first edition of Lyrical Ballads in 1798. Though called "Fourth Edition," Vol. II was really a third edition. Coleridge contributed four poems to this set, the last edition of Lyrical Ballads in which any of Coleridge's work was represented: The Foster-Mother's Tale; The Nightingale, written in April 1798; Love; The Ancient Mariner. A Preface by Wordsworth, introduced in 1802 edition, contains the poetical principles of the two poets. A former owner of this set, David, Baron Hume (1757–1838), was a Scottish judge and legal scholar whose work on Scottish law has had a deep and continuing influence. He is referred to as Baron Hume to distinguish him from his uncle, David Hume the philosopher. Seller Inventory # 119494
