Poems and Ballads

£95.00

Product description

This copy is a 1st edition, second series. It is of note as it is published by John Camden Hotten, Picadilly, but the pages are bound in the bindings of the original publisher's (Edward Moxon).

Poems and Ballads sparked a controversy which has few rivals in English poetry. The First Series had initial printing of 1,000 copies, printing for publisher Edward Moxon, but following controversy and criticism surrounding the book, the manager withdrew the publishing rights from Moxon and passed the sheets to John Camden Hotten. Hotten supplied a new half-title and title-page with his imprint and produced a 'concealed' second edition, where the internal content is the first edition printing in its second, Hotten, issue internally, but in the original, first-issue, Moxon binding with the EM monogram in the blind decoration on the boards, and 'MOXON' in gilt at the foot of the spine.

This copy has bevelled cover board. There is bumping at the top and bottom of the spine, and the front cover's corners also are bumped. Both the front and the back have some colour loss due to shelf rub. The spine is cocked. The front hinge is cracked, and the front end page has some ink transfer from a library crest pasted in. The title pages, dedication page, and contents pages have tanning and foxing, however the content pages of the book are largely free from foxing. The last page also has foxing and tanning.
