Comments

24 letters written between 1811 and 1822 from Percy Shelley to his friend Leigh Hunt, compiled by Thomas J. Wise, as a publication of his Ashley Library. An attractive and interesting work, but tainted by the typical Wiseian fallacious statement about the limitation of "only" 30 copies. Bookplate on the front paste-down of Louis V. Ledoux.

Price: $750.00
