London: Edward Moxon & Co., 1864. Stated second edition of this Coleridge edition, published the same year as the first. 2 vols, green full morocco, gilt spines, gilt decorated turn-downs, a.e.g., lxvii, , 390, ; viii, 439 pages.

The authorized and standard edition of the poet’s works in a handsome binding. Praed (1802-1839) was by all contemporary accounts handsome and brilliant, and his early death only secured his status as something of a legend of unrealized promise (see the DNB). Armorial bookplate of R. C. Burdick in each volume.
