"I FEAR THEE, ANCIENT MARINER!": OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS EDITION OF COLERIDGE'S CLASSIC, NICELY BOUND

COLERIDGE, Samuel Taylor (ROGERS, Bruce, designer). The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Oxford: at the University Press, 1930. Slim octavo, modern three-quarter navy morocco. $750.

Fine press edition of Coleridge's poetic masterpiece, designed by Bruce Rogers for the Oxford University Press, one of 750 printed, handsomely bound.

"Like Spenser [Coleridge] is a poet's poet… His best poems are all really dreams or spontaneous reveries… His unique melody is the natural expression of his surprising power of giving the mystical beauty of natural scenery" (DNB). "The positive benefit of Coleridge's divided nature was an ability to think and work in more than one psychic dimension. At his best he could do this brilliantly as in 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,' where the effect of dramatizing the conflicts in his own psyche was a lack of direct consistency assisting the sense of mystery" (ODNB).

Fine condition.
