Full limp vellum, with ties (one partial), uncut. A fine copy in a quarter blue calf box. One of 300 copies. Of Coleridge Morris wrote: “Coleridge was a muddle-brained metaphysician who by some strange freak of fortune turned out a few real poems amongst the dreary flood of inanity that was his wont. It is these real poems only that must be selected or we burden the world with another useless book... There is absolutely no difficulty in choosing, because the difference between his poetry and his drivel is so striking.” The poems included are Christabel, Kubla Khan, Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Fragment of a Sexton’s Tale, Love, Ballad of the Dark Ladie, Names, Youth and Age, The Improvisatore, Work without Hope, Garden of Boccaccio, Knight’s Tomb, and Alice du Clos. Ransom, p. 329. Peterson A38. (Item Id: 107788)
