December 5, 2017

19th cent.

Coleridge, Samuel Taylor. Poems chosen out of the works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Ed. F. S. Ellis. Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1896.

Vellum copy. Inscribed by Jane Morris to Sydney Cockerell, 2 September 1912. Note by Cockerell on flyleaf: “Owing to the difficulties of printing on vellum, it was necessary, in order to ensure the full number of perfect copies, to print one more of each sheet than was required. This volume consists of the sheets which remained over after the sheets for the eight vellum copies of this work had been selected. The majority are quite satisfactory, but here and there the vellum may be too thin or the inking defective or there may be slight stains needing this explanation.”

Provenance: William Morris. — Jane Morris. — Sydney Cockerell. — Lessing J. Rosenwald. — Library of Congress (PR4478.A35 E4 Copy 2, Rosenwald Collection) [gift of Rosenwald].
