His first collection of poetry, in contemporary marbled calf

First edition of Coleridge's first collection of poetry, preceding the Lyrical Ballads by two years, and also including four sonnets by Charles Lamb marking his first publication in book form.

The collection sold well enough for a second edition to appear the following year, which the author revised; in his later fame, Coleridge disavowed the collection as juvenilia. Among the shorter pieces is his "Effusion... to a young Ass", for which he was roundly mocked.
