Housed in green clamshell box with a marbled interior and a black morocco label. FIRST EDITION of this collection of works by these three Romantic poets. Comprises the first collected edition of Shelley, the first collected edition of Keats, and only the second collected edition of Coleridge, with many poems published for the first time. With frontispiece portrait of the three poets. This edition was published in Paris because the poets lacked international copyright protection and no royalties needed to be paid. However, Galignani in fact worked closely with friends and relatives of the poets to create these three exhaustive collections. The frontispiece portrait is the first printed portrait of Shelley. MacGillivray B1. Peck ii, 440. A scarce and desirable copy in a beautiful and very appropriate period binding.
