LOT 3015
KEATS, John. The Eve of St. Agnes. London: Sampson Low, 1859. 8vo (194 x 125mm.) Numerous illustrations by Edward H. Wehnert, 1p. of publisher's advertisements to rear. (Toning.) Original jade morocco, blind-stamped and with gilt centre-piece to both covers (slight fading to spine). Note: the first separate edition of a Keats poem, apart from Endymion in 1818. It's based on the folk belief that if unmarried women perform certain rituals on the eve of St. Agnes day, then a vision or dream of their future husband will appear. Keats began writing the poem while staying in Chichester. Provenance: Mrs. M. Hogaboom Sharon (ink inscribed to initial blank).
