The first anthology of the Romantics

First edition of the first anthology of the Romantic writers, also comprising the first collected edition of the poems of John Keats. Each poet is prefaced with a memoir, that of Shelley incorporating Mary Shelley's preface to his Posthumous Poems. Galignani's Paris editions of the English poets were piracies (he also pirated Crabbe, Hazlitt, Washington Irving, Thomas Moore, Walter Scott, and Southey), but carefully done. Wordsworth admitted that Galignani's edition of his poems "is printed with admirable accuracy, I have not noticed a single error that I am not myself answerable for".
