Shelley (set of 2). Norman Ivey White.

Shelley (set of 2)

Knopf, 1940. First Edition. Cloth. A gorgeous first edition of the landmark biography of Percy Bysshe Shelley in two volumes containing many illustrations and portraits by various artists. Unanimously hailed by critics upon release, this is still considered the definitive Shelley biography both for its scholarship and its insight into the poet's singular mind. A triumph of book design as well, in elegant neo-classical paper wraps around fine blue cloth and gilt boards. In original slipcase in good condition despite some chipping on the paper covering. Books are fine, and dust jackets are good with some chipping at edges. Small "Research Council Collection" (University of Chicago, thought that isn't stated) stamp on flyleafs, no other ex-library markings. Fine / good. Item #209

Price: $80.00
