SHELLEY (PERCY BYSSHE). Queen Mab; /
A / Philosophical Poem: / With Notes. / By
Percy Bysshe Shelley. /

London: / Printed by P. B. Shelley, / 23, Chapel
Street, Grosvenor Square, / 1813.

8vo, full morocco, gilt top, uncut, by Riviere.

The First Edition, and extremely rare with the title-page, dedi-
cation "To Harriet ***," and Shelley's imprint at the end, all
of which are usually lacking.

The book was privately printed and never intended for anything
but private circulation. After his separation from Harriet West-
brook, Shelley tore out the dedication, title and imprint, in the
copies that remained undistributed. The notes also excited per-
secution of the author. Very few copies are found intact.

the Prologue and the Epilogue, also the leaf of "Errata" on
verso of which is the "Dramatis Persona?," including Quick,

This is the generally accepted First Edition, although there is
a copy in the British Museum dated 1780. A portion of the first
edition consisted of ninety-eight pages (like the above copy).
Both are exactly the same up to page eighty. It is not known
whether Sheridan contracted the play by two pages, or extended it
by two, although the former has generally been considered the
first edition.

of the last leaf, but contains the Epilogue, and the London cast.
There is a record of the sale of a copy dated "1781." The British
Museum copy has a final blank leaf. Bound in at the end is a
page numbered 339-340, entitled "The American Negociator,"
having the value of sterling reduced to Irish money, and vice versa.

the title, dedication, and two leaves in facsimile, and contains
the rare blank leaf before the title, usually missing. There is a
slight difference in the imprint of the title-page in some copies,
most of them reading "Printed by John Windet for William
Ponsonbie. ' ' Only two or three copies are known with the imprint
omitting Windet 's name, as in this case.

When Queen Elizabeth visited Sidney with her displeasure in
1580, he withdrew to his sister's, the Countess of Pembroke.
There he wrote the "Arcadia," said to have been suggested by
the "Arcadia" of Sanzarro, a Neapolitan poet.

The influence of this romance on contemporary literature was
remarkable. Among Sidney's imitators were Shakespeare, Spenser,
Beaumont and Fletcher.

This copy contains many signatures and scribblings in contem-
porary handwriting.

have similar allusions to his name. " There is another note oppo-
