In absolutely excellent condition here is a finely bound copy of The Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley Including Materials Never Before Printed in Any Edition of the Poems. Published by Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press in their Oxford Edition. Has notes by Hutchinson and two prefaces by Mary Shelley. In a fine polished tree calf binding with ornate gilt decoration, marbled endpapers and page edges and in the original lined slipcase box. A wonderful copy.

Inside the pages are clean, crisp and tightly bound. Has an Ex Libris bookplate on the front marbled paste down (see photos), but no other writing or markings of previous ownership. With a portrait frontispiece and tissue guard, else unillustrated.

The leather is in top order, with gilt decorative dentelles around the borders and outside edges. With just some slight rubbing to the leather on the spine in a few small places and mildly down the joints. Has a dark red Moroccan leather title plate.

The slipcase box has a little rubbing around the outside edges, else also very good. Even the box has the attention to detail of having been lined with floral paper.

Your antique copy of The Poetical Works of Shelley will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to include a gift card and message if desired.

H 19 cm x W 13 cm, 913 pages, 0.81 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the full protective packaging please add a note to the order.
