Manuscript] Specimens of Miscellaneous Poetry with several Original Pieces.
London: 1822 - Octavo (175 x 105 mm). Contemporary calf, spine gilt- and blind-tooled in compartments with black title label, boards richly panelled in gilt and blind, endpapers coated green, all edges gilt. Very slight rubbing, a few trivial spots without, but a beautiful book in excellent contemporary condition. A lovely manuscript anthology of Romantic poetry, executed in 1822 and giving a valuable record of contemporary taste, with numerous poems by Lord Byron ("To Thirza", "The Destruction of Sennacherib", "Fare thee Well!", and "She walk in beauty.", to name but few), as well as others by Walter Scott, Robert Southey, Erasmus Darwin, Samuel Rogers, etc. These appear alongside many "Anonymous" poems, the vast majority of which appear to have been drawn from contemporary editions of Blackwoods Edinburgh Magazine - so many so that we must surmise the selection was made by an avid subscriber. [Attributes: First Edition]
