Shelley : An Essay

£19.99

Product description

Archibald Constable & Co. Ltd., London, 1904. Cloth Hardback. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Book Description : 1904, 1st Ed. red cloth hardback; 126 pages; G.

Cambridge University Lecturer, Adolphus Jack, re-evaluates the literary importance of the controversial poet Shelley, said by some to be the first of the English lyrical poets, and by others to be ineffectual. The author's express aim was to foster an appreciation of Shelley, but this is a fairly objective and comparative study. Shelley's works are appraised both in terms of what makes for a "classic", and Shelley's own limitations and talents as a contributor to that literary pantheon.

Book Condition : Good : cloth of spine is sunfaded but there is only a hint of wear to the gilt titling; slight bumping to head and foot of spine area as well as denting chiefly to lower corner tips; slight shelfwear and marginal fading at far edges of boards and perhaps generally; mild waterstain to middle of back cover; endpapers are yellowed and inner pages are mildly yellowed; there is some foxing to the last 10 or so pages chiefly in the margins; many of the inner pages are uncut; binding is secure and fairly tight.
