About This Item

London: S. Curtis for Rest Fenner (preliminaries in gathering [A]), [text printed in Bristol by John Evans & Co.], 1817. Occasional very minor pale spotting as often, some restoration to spine, chips to spine label, corners bumped, a few losses along spine. 8vo (222 x141 mm). Half-title and leaf of errata. Original boards, printed paper spine label, untrimmed; blue quarter morocco slipcase. Provenance: William G. Freeman (bookplate); A. Edward Newton (bookplate); George A. Martin (his sale Parke-Bernet, 13-14 January 1947, lot 232). First edition, rare in the original boards and a tall, untrimmed copy. Among Coleridge's major works here collected are the final revised version of "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner," "The Nightingale," "Dejection: An Ode" and "France: An Ode." This was originally projected to be the second part of an intended two-volume project consisting of Biographia Literaria and Sibylline Leaves, printed by John Evans & Co. of Bristol in 1814-15 (hence the appearance of the register 'Vol. II' at intervals in the text). This project was abandoned and the sheets were acquired by Rest Fenner, who printed the preliminaries and issued the work, as here, in 1817. Ashley I, p.206; Tinker 697; Wise Coleridge, 45.
