Cloth, 8vo, xx, 133, [1] pp, facs. Approximately 150 entries. Includes "not only descriptions of every known edition of Shelley's writings published during his lifetime, together with succinct notes of the circumstances under which each of his books came to be composed and extracts bearing upon them from his correspondence, but also a complete series of reproductions of the early title-pages, numbering as many as thirty. Both the Club and its Librarian are to be congratulated on an excellent piece of work, which forms a compendious and reliable guide through Shelley's literary career and is, moreover, extremely well got up and pleasant in the handling.Among the copies shown were Shelley's own Queen Mab, with his notes for revision, the copy of Adonais which he presented to Keats's friend Severn at Rome, and a number of -similar treasures. Many of the letters and manuscripts exhibited were also of importance." - from a contemporary review of the first edition. As new. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-22020
