Notes

A highly attractive copy of Keats's poetry, in a presentation binding, with a morocco presentation slip lettered in gilt on the front pastedown reading "Margaret Sandford on her wedding day Sept. 22. 1926. From C.R.L.F." Forman's edition of Keats was first published in 1883, and ranks as perhaps the finest edition of the poet produced in the 19th century.
