THE ANNUAL ANTHOLOGY in two volumes
Bristol: Biggs and Co., 1799 & 1800. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine, handsomely bound. Two volumes (4" x 6-1/2") bound in recent half brown morocco with matching corners retaining the original marbled boards, all edges marbled. Leaf B8 (pages 31-32) lacking in first volume, as usual; C3 in second volume in uncancelled state, with word "wicked" present on page 37, line 9. [Tinker 1953; Wise, Coleridge, 15]. Contributions by Samuel T. Coleridge (27 poems, some previously unpublished), Poet Laureate Robert Southey, Charles Lamb, Robert Lovell, Humphry Davy, Amelia Opie, and others. Pages 31-32 contained Southey's "War Poem," but were canceled in all but two known copies as the poem was considered unpatriotic. A third volume was advertised but never published. A remarkable and important collection of early Romantic poetry, here in unusually nice condition.
