First Edition. The principal primary source for Coleridge's gifted daughter; it includes an account of S.T.C.'s death, and the surprising information that he left an insurance policy worth £2560, a considerable sum then for a chronically impoverished poet. Bound by Zaehnsdorf, and with armorial bookplate of John Theodore Merz (1840-1922), Vice Chairman of the Newcastle upon Tyne Electricity Supply Company.
