Top edge gilt and others untrimmed. Protected by the original slipcase. The paper used is hand-made paper specially designed with a seaweed motif. There are ten magnificent tipped in colour plates, which measure 30 cm x 21 cm., in Le Cain's vibrant early style, reminiscent of some of the great golden age illustrators, such as Nielsen and Clarke. Both book and slipcase as new. A fine copy of this stunning production.

Loosely inserted is the original advertising leaflet from Arcadia Press, explaining that the publication was timed to coincide with the 200th Anniversary of Coleridge's birth.
