Antique The Rime of The Ancient Mariner Book Poem by Cole Ridge, Illustrated Gustave Doré 1880s

Sorry, this item has sold.

This is an antique book by Samuel Taylor Coleridge The Rime of The Ancient Mariner. It is beautifully illustrated in black and white pictures by Gustave Doré. This is a poem, and the author's longest. Said to be a confusing one to read.

The book measures 11" x 14.25" and the only date indicated is when it was entered according to the Act of Congress by Henry Altemus. The front is missing much of the original gold gilt. The pages are also gilt. There is some wear to the cover edges and corners. Inside there is foxing and discoloration to the pages, some have none, some such as the blank front and back have more noticeable amounts. Many pages also have a slight wavy appearance.
