The Text of ShelleyÕs Death

by [Shelley] HALSEY Alan

Stoke Prior: Five Seasons Press, 1995. Bound by Maurice Edwards at The Fine Bindery in reproduction of an Italian notebook used by Shelley in 1822. The endpapers are facsimiles (in sepia) of two page from the notebook pages. The book is laid in a green solander box whose covers reproduce further pages from Shelley's 1822 notebook and from the Triumph of Life manuscript.. Mint. . Limited edition :Twenty six copies only lettered A to Z. This copy is lettered ÔJ. (25 x 175mm), pp. [i-viii], 9-82. Hand printed letterpress on dampened handmade Fabriano Umbria using relief plates set in 12.5pt Linotype Granjon. The solander box also contains a Prospectus and ÔAn updateÕ on the publication which has a colour photograph of the various aspects of the book. From the Prospectus: 'For the first section, The Text of ShelleyÕs Death, Alan Halsey has developed a technique that brilliantly combines the poetic collage with the scholarly Variorum to enable all the voices with all their different stories to speak in a resoundingly symphonic' 'squabbling of the phantasms.' The second section, Reversions on the Text provides a comprehensive commentary and the third section, Towards an Index of ShelleyÕs Death, takes the form of a wholly new kind of 'found poem'. This strikingly original work, at once lyrical scholarly and philosophical, gives new meaning to Shelley's own words: "That there is a true solution of the riddle and that in our present state that solution is unattainable by us" .'
