The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.London: George G. Harrap & Co.,  Stock Code: 143428
First Pogany edition, deluxe issue. Featuring intricately decorated borders and text printed in manuscript style, this edition of Coleridge's masterpiece is perhaps Pogany's best work, "considered by many to be among the most beautiful books ever produced" (Jeff Menges).
Folio. Original brown reverse calf, gilt title and blindstamped illustration to cover, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, brown pictorial endpapers.
Title page printed in red, green and gilt, 20 tipped-in colour plates, illustrations to text in black and white, all by Willy Pogany.
Tiny smudge to corner of p. 109, not affecting text, and otherwise quite clean. An excellent copy.
