LOT 3085
[WORDSWORTH, William, and Samuel Taylor COLERIDGE.] Lyrical Ballads, with a Few Other Poems. London: printed for J. & A. Arch, 1798. First edition, second issue, small 8vo (156 x 88mm) (Occasional minor spotting or soiling.) Late 19th Century green calf, by Riviére & Son, spine gilt in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second and third compartments, gilt turn-ins, t.e.g. (endpapers replaced). Provenance: Geoffrey Ecroyd (armorial book plate); 'Antony' (presentation inscription to preliminary blank dated '17th December 1966'). Note: a landmark of English poetry, the majority of the poems are by Wordsworth, but among Coleridge's contributions is the earliest version of 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner'. The scarce first issue was published in Bristol by Joseph Cottle, printing five hundred copies but almost immediately disposing of his stock to the London publisher. Arch produced a new title-page and advertisement leaf. Arch also replaced the poem 'Lewti' with 'The Nightingale' causing a minor error in page numbering.
