The Poetical Works of Samuel Taylor
Coleridge. Edited, with a Biographical
Introduction, by James Dykes Campbell.
London: Macmillan and Co., 1893. The
Preface is dated " St. Leonard's-on-Sea,
March 23, 1893." One vol., 8vo., pp.
cxxiv + 667. (Text, Notes, Appendices,
and Indices in double columns.)

A reprint was issued in 1899. The frontispiece is a
photogravure portrait of Coleridge, from the picture by-
Peter Vandyke in the National Portrait Gallery.

This edition professes to be " founded on that pub-
lished in 1829, as being the last upon which" the
author " was able to bestow personal care and atten-
tion." While taking the edition of 1829, however, as

the standard for his text, to the poems comprised in it the
editor has added " all those dropped by Coleridge from
the various collections issued in his lifetime, and all
those hitherto added by his editors, from whatever
source," not, however, in most cases, without some
direct and adequate acknowledgment. He has also
added a few discoveries of his own, notably the impor-
tant treasure-trove of the previously unknown blank-
verse lines to Matilda Betham, written in 1802, the
entire credit of which discovery is due to him. The
four-volume edition of 1877, produced with consider-
able labour and expense, and issued in a sumptuous
and voluminous form, is (as might have been expected)
laid heavily under contribution. The only thing in
that edition which Mr. Dykes Campbell, whether by
oversight or otherwise, has not included is the poem of
"The Old Man of the Alps" (bearing, like " Lewti,"
on its first appearance in The Morning Post, the signa-
ture of " Nicias Erythrjeus " — a signature which not
only identifies the authorship of the poem, but which is
doubtless intended to possess some meaning and signi-
ficance).* This I, somewhat unnecessarily, relegated
to an appendix. Like the " Ancient Mariner," " The
Old Man of the Alps " telta his tale of woe to a stranger
— a less impatient auditor than the wedding guest to
a less importunate narrator. Did Mr. Dykes Campbell
suppose that the "Nicias Erythraeus " of " The Old
Man of the Alps " was not the identical " Nicias
Erythrsus" of "Lewti" — the one and indivisible

" Esteesi " ? or did he overlook a poem of which I
had discovered not only the existence but the author-
ship ? The method he generally adopted, and frankly
acknowledged, without disguise or attempt at conceal-
ment, of entering into the labours of his predecessors,
rendered his task of editing comparatively easy. It
must, however, be cordially admitted that Mr. Dykes
Campbell brought qualifications to his task that made
him a worthy fellow-worker in any literary field which
in his later years he undertook to till.

The following is a list of the poems, etc., printed
for the first time in Mr. J. Dykes Campbell's edition of
Coleridge's " Poetical Works " :

This edition of the principal poems of Coleridge is
important, not only on account of the admirable Intro-

from MS. notes of the author which are not found in
previous collections. Dr. Garnett has printed in his

This collection of Coleridge's letters from the
earliest to the latest date, edited by a son of the late
Rev. Derwent Coleridge, and a grandson of the poet,
has partly supplied a desideratum, but there is still
much to be accomplished either by himself, or by
other after-gleaners in the same field. The two
volumes contain two hundred and sixty letters, ad-
dressed by the poet to his mother, to his brother the
Rev. George Coleridge, to Captain James Coleridge, to
Thomas Poole of Nether Stowey, to Mrs. Evans and
to Mary and Anne Evans, to G. L. Tuckett, to Robert
Sou they, to Joseph Cottle, to Josiah Wade, to John

Beaumont, Thomas Poole of Nether Stowey) and in old
magazines, e.g., the Gentleman's* Fraser's, the London
Magazine, etc., well worthy of preservation, together
with such as may still remain inedited in manuscript.

Three letters of Coleridge were printed for the first
time in this interesting volume.

The best short papers on Coleridge are " My First
Acquaintance with Poets," by William Hazlitt, pub-
lished in The Liberal ; the Elian essay, by Charles
Lamb, in which Coleridge is introduced ; the famous
chapter on Coleridge in Carlyle's " Life of John Ster-
ling," London, 185 1 ; and a portion of De Quincey's


" Autobiographic Sketches." There are short memoirs
or sketches of Coleridge by Leigh Hunt in the book
entitled " Lord Byron and his Contemporaries," orig-
inally published in one volume, 4-to., in 1828, and
afterwards, in two 8vo. volumes, in 1830 ; and also
in the Fraser Gallery of Portraits, written presumably
by Maginn, the drawing being by Daniel Maclise. To
these may be added incidental notices of Coleridge, innum-
erable and of the highest importance, in Charles Lamb's
published letters ; in Clement Carlyon's " Recollec-
tions of Early and Later Years" ; in the Memoirs of
Wordsworth and Southey ; in Leigh Hunt's Autobi-
ography ; in Crabb Robinson's " Diary " ; in Dorothy
Wordsworth's "Journal of a Tour in Scotland in 1803,"
and in "The Lambs, their Lives, their Friends, and
their Correspondence," by W. C. Hazlitt, 1897.

The following collection, which the editor has been
unable to consult, should not be omitted :

Unpublished Letters from S. T. Coleridge
to the Rev. John Prior Estlin. Com-
municated by Henry A. Bright. Philo-
biblon Society. N.D.


Much of the brilliant and incisive table-talk of Cole-
ridge's early and later years (except what has been col-
lected expressly by his nephew or preserved incidentally
by his more or less famous contemporaries in their


memoirs and letters) has probably perished with his
intimates, and, as there was no Boswell to record it, is
now hopelessly irrecoverable. Enough remains to make
us eager to obtain more, and disposed to regret bitterly
what is lost.

The following book may find an entry here :

The Table-Talk and Omniana of Samuel
Taylor Coleridge ; with additional Table-
Talk from Allsop's " Recollections," and
manuscript matter not before printed.
Arranged and edited by T. Ashe. Lon-
don : Bell, 1884. 8vo., pp. xix (one
unnumbered leaf) + 446.

The main contents of this volume, which was in-
cluded in Bohn's Standard Library, consist of Henry
Nelson Coleridge's " Specimens of the Table-Talk of
S. T. C," which was originally published in 1835.


There exist, in Coleridge's autograph, extending over
many years, a large number of marginalia on poets,
divines, etc., and on many general subjects, both secular
and sacred. Some of these have been collected, but a
considerable proportion of those extant are still unpub-
lished, and a great boon would be conferred by any
enterprising editor or publisher who, with the aid of
their present owners, could bring them together into


one sequence and render them accessible to his admirers.
This habit was adopted by Coleridge in early life, and
continued through a long course of years. Some of
these manuscript marginalia are in books borrowed by
him, some in those of his own collection, some in
pencil, others in ink ; all are generally very suggestive,
and full of fine and choice criticism. Coleridge's will
was printed in the public journals shortly after his
death. It is a long and very remarkable document,
well worthy of permanent preservation.

A few of the printed marginalia may be enumerated.
In the year 1830 a thin volume of "Sonnets" was
published by Charles Tennyson, of which a copy was
presented to Coleridge. This volume afterwards came
back into the possession of the family enriched with
many marginal notes, and these "applausive comments,"
as they are styled by James Spedding in his Introduc-
tory Essay, were printed in the collected edition of the
author's poems.* Other interesting commentaries will
be found in Notes and Queries, of which the most im-
portant are those on Pepys' "Diary" (ist S., vi. 213),
Raleigh's " History of the World" (ist S., xii. 5), and
Fuller's " Worthies " (7th S., vi. 501). In this connec-
tion it may be interesting to note the numerous books
in the library of his friend Charles Lamb which were

* Collected Sonnets, Old and New. By Charles
Tennyson Turner. London : C. Kegan Paul and Co.,
1, Paternoster Square, 1880. Coleridge's notes will be
found between pp. 36 and 84.


enriched with Coleridge's marginalia. Of these, the
best known is the 1679 folio of Beaumont and Fletcher's
" Fifty Comedies and Tragedies." Another very
interesting relic is the 17 18 edition of Daniel's
" Poetical Works," of which a description, with many
extracts, is given in Notes and Queries, 1st S., vi.
117. A list of sixty-six books in the Library of the
British Museum, containing MS. notes, etc., by Cole-
ridge, is given by Mr. J. P. Anderson in the Bibliography
appended to Mr. Hall Caine's " Life of Coleridge."

In The Athenatum for April 7 and June 23, 1888, the
late Mr. J. Dykes Campbell printed some interesting
marginalia which Coleridge had written in copies of
Grew's " Cosmologia Sacra," and of Jahn's " History
of the Hebrew Commonwealth." Since Mr. Camp-
bell's death two other valuable articles have been com-
municated to the same paper : one in the number for
December 26, 1896, on Coleridge's marginalia on a
copy of Flogel's " History of Comic Literature ;" and
the other in the number for May 22, 1897, on a copy
of Spinoza's Works in the library of Manchester
College, Oxford. I may also refer to some notes in a
copy of Colquhoun's " Treatise on Indigence," which
was printed in the New York Philobiblion, 1862, i. 65.


Golden fragments of Coleridge's numerous lectures
have been preserved, in shorthand and otherwise, by
some of those who heard and took notes of them.



There also exist, though of rare occurrence, printed
fly-leaf Syllabuses, emanating direct from the author,
of these successive courses of lectures, which collectors
eagerly seek after. Coleridge's lectures extended over
a long course of years. The pulpit utterances of his
youth do not appear to have been published or printed
to any large extent, either separately or in journals.
The art of shorthand reporting as applied to sermons
was then in its infancy, and Coleridge's fame and
influence in that respect were merely local and pro-
