Coleridge S. (Samuel) T. (Taylor)
The Poetical Works of S. T. Coleridge, including the Dramas of Wallenstein, Remorse, and Zapolya, complete in 3 volumes, first large paper edition
London: William Pickering, 1828. Complete set in 3 volumes. One of 12 copies of the first large paper edition; however, the fly leaf of Volume 1, with Pickering's signed limitation statement, has been neatly removed. 1828. Hardcovers, 8vo., all three in original red cloth with title labels. x, 353, iv, 370, iv 428 pp. Very Good+ set. Bright, clean and unmarked contents. Some loss and rubbing to the title labels, but most of the text is still present. Spines sunned; a few small areas of discoloration to the spines and boards. Coleridge was apparently displeased with this first edition and rushed to get the second edition published. Lacks signed page, but still a scarce set. As WISE, iii, 1 notes, Dykes Campbell said of this edition, 'This must be a rare book... How much Coleridge was dissatisfied with the edition of 1828 is witnessed by the many alterations he made in preparing that of 1829.' Digital images available upon request. Very Good+ / No Jacket. [Attributes: First Edition]
