William Hayley

The Life, and Posthumous Writings, of William Cowper, Esqr.

with an Introductory Letter to the Right Honourable Earl Cowper


Published by J.Johnson London 1803/4

Edition 1st

Format  Quarto   Condition Very good

Complete in three volumes. Volume III has Vol II Second Edition title page dated 1803, the volume number corrected to ‘III’ by hand. Six engravings by William Blake, five after Rumney, Heins, Lawrence, Stone & Flaxman; the sixth, ‘The Weather-house’, also drawn by Blake, is misplaced, appearing at the end of Volume I rather than page 415 of Volume II. ‘A Sketch of the Monument’ bound facing Volume III frontispiece. Half-titles to all volumes. Internally very good indeed. Bound in contemporary mottled calf, gilt-decorated spines; some wear to joints, particularly Volume I which also has slight loss to leather at foot of upper board although the binding remains sound. Small bookplate of John Rutherford of Edgerston.
