Catalogue Note

THE RARE PRIVATE EDITION OF THE AUTHOR'S FAVOURITE OF ALL HIS POETICAL WORKS, deemed his "most perfect" by Richard Garnett. Amelia was printed on fine paper in an edition of 20 or 25 copies. The last copy we have been able to find at auction was that sold at Sotheby's Parke Bernet in October 1970 (John Drinkwater's copy, for $240). In the UK, COPAC records copies only at the British Library, Nottingham and Aberdeen.
