Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Elephant Folio, illustrations by Gustave Dore, 1877


Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
illustrations by Gustave Dore
Harper & Brothers, 1877
Elephant Folio (19 inches by 15 inches)

This book is in fair condition with the front board completely detached. The books consists of a title vignette and 12 pages comprising the text of the poem. The 39 wood engravings are all present; however not all tissue guards are present. These engravings were all done by eminent French engravers of the period. Dore's illustrations for this poem are among his most dramatic visual works. There is some residual damp staining along the bottom edges of many of the pages, but it does not extend into the engravings.

This book is being sold "as is." Good for a rebinding project or for framing the illustrations.

This is not a modern reprint or former library book.
