Specimens of the Table Talk of Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Aldemarle Street, London, First Edition. Edited by Henry Nelson Coleridge. Original drab boards, with paper labels, Volume One is split in half, Volume Two is OK, labels darkened, entirely uncut. Published by John Murray London , London Denver, CO, U. Published by John Murray, London About this Item: John Murray, London, A delightful and eye-opening read for any 21st century American.
Overall, these are such lovely, warm copies - a pure delight to handle - that I ended up reading both volumes from beginning to end and was loathe to have to finally put them back on the shelf! A lovely collection of Coleridge's conversational gambits at dinner - here recorded and compiled by his nephew and covering the last twelve years of his life.
The snippets recorded are heavily laden with Greek, Latin, French and Italian and contain a vast amount of references to contemporary people and events. Let the modern reader beware!
The comments are erudite, witty and heavily spiced with Coleridge's prejudices and pet peeves - with a strong emphasis on religion and politics. Contemporary marbled boards lightly worn with half-leather. Spines with four ribs and gilt lettering on two red fields. Previous owner's bookplate to the side front cover of each volume. The book is interspersed with occasional contemporary pencil marginalia of a critical and entertaining nature.
Unfortunately, the frontispiece portrait in volume one has been partially defaced - I can only speculate that our pencil-in-hand reader was really not happy with Coleridge! Otherwise, these are very pretty copies of this work that saw many editions in the mids.
Published by John Murray, Handsome copy of a work first published in London: John Murray, Two volumes. Prideaux, p. Haney mis-printed the pagination of the preface in volume 1. Frontisportrait inserted in V. He provides a lengthy preface. A little rubbing but an attractive, Very Good copy.
