        Propyläen. Eine periodische Schrifft [Bde.2f.: Schrift] herausgegeben von Goethe. Ersten Bandes Erstes Stück (- Dritten Bandes Zweites Stück.). Sechs Stücke in drei Bänden. Mit fünf Kupfertafeln (davon zwei in Rötel und eine gefaltet).

      Tübingen, in der J.G.Cotta’schen Buchhandlung 1798 – 1800 - Gr-8°. I: XLVI S., (1) Bl., 127 S.; (2) Bll., 176 S.; II: 174 S., (1) Bl.; 171, (1) S., (1) Bl.; III: 179, (1) S., (2) Bll. Anzeigen; 175, (1) S. Halblederbände d.Zt. mit zwei farb. Rückenschilden und –vergoldung. Decken berieben, Ecken etwas bestoßen. - Erste Ausgabe (Goedeke IV/3,357-360, 89; Hagen 483; Fischer, Cotta 242, 271 u. 303). – Teils etwas stockfleckig. Zeitgenöss. Name a.d. Vorsatz „F.A.Müller“. - Nach dem unerwartet baldigen Niedergang von SCHILLERs Horen „konzipierte nunmehr GOETHE federführend mit modifizierten Ansprüchen und Inhalten die Propyläen. . Nahtlos knüpften die Propyläen, das zweite und letzte Journal der Weimarer Publizistik, deshalb mit ihrem ersten Erscheinungsjahr an das letzte der Horen an.“ (M.Gross, Ästhetik und Öffentlichkeit, S.191). Gedanklich vorbereitet war das Projekt seit einigen Jahren, da GOETHE ein enzyklopädisches Werk über Kunst und Geschichte Italiens plante. Dazu gesammelte Entwürfe und Aufsätze sollten nun in die Propyläen einfließen. Die klassizistische Kunstauffassung der Herausgeber sollte einer breiten Öffentlichkeit nahe gebracht, die Kunst aus „beschränkten, häuslichen Verhältnissen“ (Meyer) wieder wie im antiken Griechenland dem „öffentlichen Lebenszusammenhang“ zugeführt werden. Von Beginn an wandte sich die Zeitschrift gegen die aufkommende Kunstauffassung der jungen Generation: „Der Jüngling, wenn Natur und Kunst ihn anziehen, glaubt, mit einem lebhaften Streben, bald in das innerste Heiligthum zu dringen; der Mann bemerkt, nach langem Umherwandeln, daß er sich noch immer in den Vorhöfen befinde.“ (GOETHE im ersten Satz der Einleitung). R.Benz hält für wahrscheinlich, dass sich dies direkt auf WACKENRODERs Absicht, der Kunst „einen neuen Altar aufzurichten“ bezieht und gegen die „frühromantische“ Kunstauffassung, wenn GOETHE fortfährt: „Der echte gesetzgebende Künstler strebt nach Kunstwahrheit, der Gesetzlose, der einem blinden Trieb folgt, nach Naturwirklichkeit, durch jenen wird die Kunst zum höchsten Gipfel, durch diesen auf die niedrigste Stufe gebracht.“ Die meisten der enthaltenen Artikel stammen von GOETHE und MEYER. CAROLINE und WILHELM VON HUMBOLDT und SCHILLER beteiligten sich mit je einem Beitrag weniger als erhofft. Die Propyläen wurden kein Erfolg und für den Verleger COTTA, der GOETHE erstmals an seinen Verlag binden konnte, „ein riesiges Verlustgeschäft, von den 1000 Exemplaren wurden nur 54 abgesetzt“ (Unseld S.313). Lt Fischer (Cotta-Bibliogr.) betrug die Auflagenhöhe von Bd.1 u. 2 je 1500 Exemplare, 275 bzw. 425 davon wurden 1812 makuliert; von den beiden Heften von Bd.3 wurden nur je 750 Exemplare gedruckt.

        The book-case of knowledge

      London: Pr. for J. Wallis by J. Cundee & T. Gillet, 1800/01. 16mo (case: 17.3 cm, 6.75"; books: approx. 9.8 cm, 3.9"). 10 vols. I: Frontis., 64 pp. II: Frontis., 63, [1] pp.; 4 plts. III: Frontis., 64 pp.; 1 plt. IV: Frontis., 64 pp. V: Frontis., 64 pp.; illus. VI: Frontis., 64 pp. VII: Frontis., 62, [2] pp. VIII: Frontis., 63, [1] pp. IX: Frontis., 32 pp.; 15 plts. X: Frontis., 32, 32 pp. Delightful collection of 10 petite but edifying volumes for children, housed in => the original wooden "bookcase" cabinet-styled box, with a sliding front panel and a drawer containing 26 wooden alphabet tiles. The wooden box is in imitation of a Georgian-style "broken pediment" bookcase with the sliding panel offering a color-printed imitation of a glass-fronted bookcase, including books behind the glass and interior draperies that are pulled partially up.    Wallis's library for youth contains the following titles: A Compendium of Simple Arithmetic (cover label: Arithmetick); A Familiar Introduction to Botany; Geography and Astronomy Familiarized for Youth of Both Sexes; Short and Easy Rules for Attaining a Knowledge of English Grammar (Grammar and Letters); The History of England from the Conquest to the Death of George II; British Heroism; or Biographical Memoirs of Some of Those Renowned Commanders, Who Have Extended the Glory of the British Nation to the Remotest Parts of the World (Lives of British Heroes); Rewards for Attentive Studies or, Stories Moral and Entertaining (Moral Tales); Mythology, or Fabulous Histories of the Heathen Deities; A Natural History of Birds and Beasts: Shewing the Character and Properties of Each Animal; and Scripture History; Or, a Brief Account of the Old and New Testament. This is the library's => first appearance; the volumes included seem to have varied somewhat in subsequent versions, and even in some recorded instances of the 1800 production. => Complete sets in the original case are vanishingly uncommon, with no U.S. institutions reporting holding all the books plus case plus tiles.    Illustration: There are a total of => 30 plates in the ten-volume set. The copper-engraved frontispiece and four plates in Botany have been => neatly and attractively hand-colored (certainly not by a childish hand), as have the frontispiece map in Geography and Astronomy and the thumbnail portraits in History of England.    The cataloguer at UCLA used the title Wallis's library for youth and said "Title supplied from Quaritch's Catalogue no. 578, p. 10. The same ten volumes were published in 1801 in a collection with the title: The book-case of knowledge."    Provenance: First, third, and sixth volumes (Arithmetick, Geography, and Lives of British Heroes) with printed paper label on front pastedowns, reading "From Grosvenor's Toy Rooms, No. 303, Holborn"; second volume (Botany) with same label on front free endpapers.    Searches of WorldCat for Bookcase of Knowledge and for Wallis's Library for Youth find only one complete set (at UCLA).         NSTC B3604 (listing second ed. only); Welsh 1453 (British Heroism), 5202 (Mythology), 6373 (Grammar). Case as above, lightly worn overall; right side panel pulling away from the base slightly and the drawer pull lacking,with interior rose paper lining chipped but present. Volumes in publisher's paper-covered boards in blue, cream, rose, yellow, and tan, with printed paper labels on front covers; bindings rubbed and darkened with varying degrees of dust-soiling and a few labels scuffed. Alphabet tiles with two Vs present, lacking X; mildly rubbed with a few darkened, one stained. Geography lacking front free endpaper, with pencilled marks of emphasis to first few pages; Moral Tales with pencilled doodle on front free endpaper. Scripture History with sewing starting to pull at front hinge (inside) and short tear to inner portion of front pastedown. => A very pleasing example of the complete collection, in a sturdy and unbroken case with finials and drawer present, and with the virtually never-seen alphabet tiles.

        Campagne d'Egypte : le général Cazals fortifie Rosette.

      - 2 lettres autographes (brouillons, l'une signée en tête) 4 In-folio 22 oct 1800 - 11 janvier 1801 Datées du 30 vendémiaire et 21 nivôse an 9. bon Rares et intéressants brouillons de deux lettres du général Cazals relatives aux réparations des fortifications de Rosette, poste stratégique à l'entrée du Nil [il dirigeait alors les fortifications des provinces de Rosette et Rahmanieh]. "Rosette, 30 vendémiaire an 7. Conformément à vos intentions, je me suis rendu à Rhamanie [Rahmanieh] où je n'ai point trouvé le camarade Burel qui était parti la veille pour Birket à l'effet d'accélérer les approvisionnements nécessaires pour la construction de la tour. On avait réparé l'année passée une brèche de 18 toises à une des tours de la redoute, le restant était écroulé. La tour s'étend entre la précédente et le front du Nil où est placée la porte, est aussi entièrement écroulé. Les causes en sont : 1° les eaux qui se sont élevées jusqu'à la hauteur du cordon, qui ont détrempé la maçonnerie et augmenté considérablement la poussée des terres. 2° la mauvaise qualité du mortier. 3° le manque de contreforts qui étaient nécessaires pour supporter la masse considérable de terres qui forme le terre plein et le parapet. Il y a un pied et demi dans une partie du magasin et de la redoute. Les causes en sont : 1° le peu d'exhaussement qu'a le terrain qui a servi d'emplacement à la redoute. 2° la grande crue du Nil survenue cette année. Environ 4 toises quarrées du plancher du magasin ont tombé et quelques autres parties ont besoin d'être étayées. Les causes en sont : la mauvaise qualité de bois vieux et vermoulu dont on a été obligé de se servir faute d'autres. Le mur extérieur du magasin ne bouge pas. L'intérieur menace de s'affaisser à quelques angles, ce qui est facile à prévenir. Relativement aux inculpations du général Boyer, Burel m'a rendu compte plusieurs fois qu'il avait été autorisé par le Gal Boyer à faire abattre dans les villages voisins quelques maisons de mamelouks pour en employer les briques et les biens aux travaux de la redoute. Rosette, ce 21 nivôse [an7]. Aussi jaloux de mériter votre estime, citoyen général, que de remplir mes devoirs que personne ne m'a encore reproché avec raison d'avoir négligé, je m'empresse de répondre à votre lettre du 18. Le guetteur d'Aboumandour a une baraque de pays, le 16 époque à laquelle il m'en a fait la demande. Lors de mon dernier passage à Rosette, le posté était logé dans une baraque. J'écrivis de suite au général Sanson pour demander l'autorisation d'y construire un corps de garde crénelé ; je viens de l'obtenir et l'on s'occupe du transport des matériaux. J'arrive d'Eccou (?) où j'ai placé un officier de génie où il veille avec activité à la mosquée du village et au ponton situé sur le bord de la mer, comme j'ai eu l'honneur de vous en prévenir dans ma dernière lettre. Il est des circonstances où les moyens d'exécution qui sont en notre pouvoir se trouvent évidemment insuffisants pour la prompte construction des ouvrages qui seraient nécessaires ou utiles ; dans ce cas qui n'arrive que trop souvent et est malheureux pour un chef qui met à remplir son devoir toute l'activité dont il est capable d'être taxé d'en avoir manqué." Général d'Empire (génie), il se distingua en Egypte. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Annual Necrology for 1797–8.

      London: Printed for R. Phillips,, 1800. Including, also, Various Articles of Neglected Biography. Vol. I. Octavo. Contemporary blue paper spine, preserving original printed paper title label, original grey boards, edges untrimmed. Folding plate facsimile of handwriting. Contemporary bookplate to front pastedown. Wear to extremities, first gathering slightly shaken, a couple of leaves unopened, yellow silk page marker pinned to front pastedown, faint pencil notation to margins of contents list; a good copy. First edition, and sole volume, of this ambitious project to record obituaries of notable persons on an annual basis. The most significant memoir recorded here is the 49 page obituary of Mary Wollstonecraft by the feminist biographer Mary Hays (1759–1843). Hays received a copy of Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman upon its publication in 1792, and was extremely motivated by its contents; she contacted the publishers and arranged a meeting with Wollstonecraft, becoming involved in London's radical Jacobin circles. Hays had written her own radical work, an Appeal to the Men of Great Britain in behalf of Women (1798), written at the same time as Wollstonecraft's Vindication, although not published for a further six years. In it Hays "joins Wollstonecraft in advising women to throw off their shackles by educating themselves rationally so that they realise their potential as the intellectual equals of men" (ODNB). Hays tended to Wollstonecraft on her deathbed, and upon Wollstonecraft's premature death in September 1797 wrote her obituary in the Monthly Review. The extended essay included here provides a less eulogistic analysis of Wollstonecraft's life whilst maintaining its political slant, describing women as "the victims of vice and superstition". Hays created a significant six volume biographical dictionary of 294 impressive women, her Female Biography (1803), in which Wollstonecraft was not included, making this a valuable and rare repository of material. Other notable obituaries included are those for Catharine II, Edmund Burke, and Antoine Lavoisier.

        Rare Broadside The Great Historical Picture of The Siege of Acre Painted by Robert Ker Porter and exhibited to the public at The Lyceum Theatre, Strand, Circa 1800 ( Napoleon Bonaparte Interest )

      Glendinning Printer of Hatton Garden, London 1800 - this is a very rare original broadside poster, advertising Sir Robert Ker Porter's, latest huge panorama painting depicting the Siege of Acre, which was probably on the same scale as some of his earlier panorama paintings such as "The Storming of Seringapatam" which measured 120 feet and was also exhibited at The Lyceum Theatre in The Strand, London the broadside measures 20 inches by 14 inches approx., printed by Glendinning Printer of Hatton Garden the broadside has been folded with heavy creasing lines, which could be flattened out, else in good general condition The Siege of Acre of 1799 was an unsuccessful French siege of the Ottoman-defended, walled city of Acre (now Akko in modern Israel) and was the turning point of Napoleon's invasion of Egypt and Syria. It was one of Napoleon's few defeats. Sir Robert Ker Porter, KCH (1777-1842) was a Scottish artist, author, diplomat and traveller. Known today for his accounts of his travels in Spain, Portugal and Russia, he was one of the earliest panorama painters in Britain, was appointed historical painter to Tsar Alexander I of Russia and served as British consul in Venezuela. In 1800 he obtained work as a scene-painter at the Lyceum Theatre, and in the same year caused a sensation when his Storming of Seringapatam, a panorama 120 feet (37 m) long, carried round three-quarters of a circle, was exhibited at the Lyceum. It was painted, according to his sister Jane, in six weeks. Other successful works in the same format were the Battle of Lodi (1803), also exhibited at the Lyceum, and the Defeat of the French at the Devil's Bridge, Mont St. Gothard, by Suwarrow in 1804. He also showed several pictures at the Royal Academy including Death of Sir Philip Sydney in 1792, The Defeat of King Stephen at the Battle of Lincoln in 1793, and the Battle of Northampton in 1796.

        The book-case of knowledge.

      London: Pr. for J. Wallis by J. Cundee & T. Gillet, 1800/01. 16mo (case: 17.3 cm, 6.75"; books: approx. 9.8 cm, 3.9"). 10 vols. I: Frontis., 64 pp. II: Frontis., 63, [1] pp.; 4 plts.

X: Frontis., 32, 32 pp. Delightful collection of 10 petite but edifying volumes for children, housed in => the original wooden "bookcase" cabinet-styled box, with a sliding front panel and a drawer containing 26 wooden alphabet tiles. The wooden box is in imitation of a Georgian-style "broken pediment" bookcase with the sliding panel offering a color-printed imitation of a glass-fronted bookcase, including books behind the glass and interior draperies that are pulled partially up.    Wallis's library for youth contains the following titles: A Compendium of Simple Arithmetic (cover label: Arithmetick); A Familiar Introduction to Botany; Geography and Astronomy Familiarized for Youth of Both Sexes; Short and Easy Rules for Attaining a Knowledge of English Grammar (Grammar and Letters); The History of England from the Conquest to the Death of George II; British Heroism; or Biographical Memoirs of Some of Those Renowned Commanders, Who Have Extended the Glory of the British Nation to the Remotest Parts of the World (Lives of British Heroes); Rewards for Attentive Studies or, Stories Moral and Entertaining (Moral Tales); Mythology, or Fabulous Histories of the Heathen Deities; A Natural History of Birds and Beasts: Shewing the Character and Properties of Each Animal; and Scripture History; Or, a Brief Account of the Old and New Testament. This is the library's => first appearance; the volumes included seem to have varied somewhat in subsequent versions, and even in some recorded instances of the 1800 production. => Complete sets in the original case are vanishingly uncommon, with no U.S. institutions reporting holding all the books plus case plus tiles.    Illustration: There are a total of => 30 plates in the ten-volume set. The copper-engraved frontispiece and four plates in Botany have been => neatly and attractively hand-colored (certainly not by a childish hand), as have the frontispiece map in Geography and Astronomy and the thumbnail portraits in History of England.    The cataloguer at UCLA used the title Wallis's library for youth and said "Title supplied from Quaritch's Catalogue no. 578, p. 10. The same ten volumes were published in 1801 in a collection with the title: The book-case of knowledge."    Provenance: First, third, and sixth volumes (Arithmetick, Geography, and Lives of British Heroes) with printed paper label on front pastedowns, reading "From Grosvenor's Toy Rooms, No. 303, Holborn"; second volume (Botany) with same label on front free endpapers.    Searches of WorldCat for Bookcase of Knowledge and for Wallis's Library for Youth find only one complete set (at UCLA).         NSTC B3604 (listing second ed. only); Welsh 1453 (British Heroism), 5202 (Mythology), 6373 (Grammar). Case as above, lightly worn overall; right side panel pulling away from the base slightly and the drawer pull lacking,with interior rose paper lining chipped but present. Volumes in publisher's paper-covered boards in blue, cream, rose, yellow, and tan, with printed paper labels on front covers; bindings rubbed and darkened with varying degrees of dust-soiling and a few labels scuffed. Alphabet tiles with two Vs present, lacking X; mildly rubbed with a few darkened, one stained. Geography lacking front free endpaper, with pencilled marks of emphasis to first few pages; Moral Tales with pencilled doodle on front free endpaper. Scripture History with sewing starting to pull at front hinge (inside) and short tear to inner portion of front pastedown. => A very pleasing example of the complete collection, in a sturdy and unbroken case with finials and drawer present, and with the virtually never-seen alphabet tiles.

        The costume of China, illustrated by sixty engravings: with explanations in English and French. - Costumes de la Chine, représentés en soixante gravures.

      Printed for W. Miller, Old Bond Street, by S. Gosnell, Little Queen Street, Holborn, London 1800 - First edition. Folio. Later paper-covered boards, red morocco title label. Very good. True first edition of the rarest costume book on China with 60 handcoloured plates. 134 Pages: title-page in English (verso blank), title-page in French (verso blank), preface in English (4 pages), preface in French (4 pages), table of contents in English and French (2 pages), text to each plate in English and French (120 pages). With 60 full-page numbered plates by Dudley (London) after Pu Qua (Canton) all dated May 4, 1799 and in fine contemporary handcolouring. With tissue-guards. First edition of a most rare work on the social life and customs of China by the George Henry Mason, who was a Major of His Majesty s 102nd Regiment. The 60 finely handcoloured plates show different occupations (largely craftsmen and street vendors) and include depictions of a barber, a bookseller, a pedlar, a shoemaker, a lady of distinction in her habit of ceremony, a carpenter, a puppet show, a woman embroidering, and many more. "Mason identified the author of the images in his book as the Chinese artist Pu Qua (active late 18th century). He probably purchased Pu Qua s paintings when, as a professional soldier, he stayed in Canton around 1790. In specifically naming the artist, Mason not only declared his role as patron and as a person with access to a faraway land, he also assured his readers that these images were credible accounts of China as seen by a Chinese" (Ten Doesschate Chu). "Mason's books are interesting, not simply as instantiations of particular illustrative scenes, but as collective documents that organize for their readers an entire typology of China, what Mason's preface to The Costume of China refers to as the "domestic and mechanical habits of an original and remote nations" (Hayot, p. 65). The first edition can be recognized by the fact the type for "costume/costumes" and "sixty engravings/soixante gravures" used on the title-pages is hollow type, as in this copy. It contains text leaves on paper watermarked 1794, 1796, 1797; plates on paper watermarked 1796, 1797, and tissue-guards watermarked 1800. The 1800 edition with "costume/costumes" and "sixty engravings/soixante gravures" in solid type on the title-pages is in fact post-1800 and contains plates printed on paper watermarked 1821 and 1823. Binding slightly used, plate 48 a bit loosening, the usual offset mostly on tissue-guards, some marginal soiling, gently age-browned. A wide-margined copy of the first costume book published by Miller and one of the most popular works on China in early 19th-century Europe. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Ausführliche Nachricht von der Octroyrten Königlich Preußichen Asiatischen Compagnie in Emden nach Canton in China.Emden, [Johann?] Brantgumm, 1751. 4to. Disbound.

Rare Emden-printed pamphlet advertising the creation of the Royal Prussian Asiatic Trading Company. The company was formed in 1751 by a consortium of Dutch, Flemish and German financiers and granted a charter by King Frederick the Great of Prussia for a monopoly of trade between Prussia and China. The pamphlet, published in June 1751 to attract buyers of the advertised 200 shares, states that before the end of the year, two ships will have departed for China and all ships would be insured with respectable foreign insurers. Since the British government opposed the creation of the company and searched one of the first vessels to leave Emden and removed all British sailors onboard, this was an important guarantee for would be investors. Although the Emden company was successful, its business was destroyed after the occupation of Emden by French troops in 1757.With 18th-century manuscript number in the upper outside corner of the title-page, and with an additional name added by a contemporary hand to the list of directors of the Company on p. 8. Although disbound, the folds of the two quires remain undamaged. Part of the sewing has come loose, so that bifolia A2.3 and B2.3 are detached. Very slightly browned, but otherwise in fine condition and only slightly trimmed.

        The book-case of knowledge.

      Pr. for J. Wallis by J. Cundee & T. Gillet. Delightful collection of 10 petite but edifying volumes for children, housed in => the original wooden "bookcase" cabinet-styled box, with a sliding front panel and a drawer containing 26 wooden alphabet tiles. The wooden box is in imitation of a Georgian-style "broken pediment" bookcase with the sliding panel offering a color-printed imitation of a glass-fronted bookcase, including books behind the glass and interior draperies that are pulled partially up. Wallis's library for youth contains the following titles: A Compendium of Simple Arithmetic (cover label: Arithmetick); A Familiar Introduction to Botany; Geography and Astronomy Familiarized for Youth of Both Sexes; Short and Easy Rules for Attaining a Knowledge of English Grammar (Grammar and Letters); The History of England from the Conquest to the Death of George II; British Heroism; or Biographical Memoirs of Some of Those Renowned Commanders, Who Have Extended the Glory of the British Nation to the Remotest Parts of the World (Lives of British Heroes); Rewards for Attentive Studies or, Stories Moral and Entertaining (Moral Tales); Mythology, or Fabulous Histories of the Heathen Deities; A Natural History of Birds and Beasts: Shewing the Character and Properties of Each Animal; and Scripture History; Or, a Brief Account of the Old and New Testament. This is the library's => first appearance; the volumes included seem to have varied somewhat in subsequent versions, and even in some recorded instances of the 1800 production. => Complete sets in the original case are vanishingly uncommon, with no U.S. institutions reporting holding all the books plus case plus tiles.

The copper-engraved frontispiece and four plates in Botany have been => neatly and attractively hand-colored (certainly not by a childish hand), as have the frontispiece map in Geography and Astronomy and the thumbnail portraits in History of England. The cataloguer at UCLA used the title Wallis's library for youth and said "Title supplied from Quaritch's Catalogue no. 578, p. 10. The same ten volumes were published in 1801 in a collection with the title: The book-case of knowledge."

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 [Attributes: First Edition]
