(SHELLEY, Percy Bysshe.) The Hermit of Marlow. 'WE PITY THE PLUMAGE, BUT FORGET THE DYING BIRD.' An Address to the People on The Death of the Princess Charlotte. £ 600.00

(London. Thomas Rodd). ND. (Circa 1843). pp 16. 8vo. Stitched as issued. Browned throughout. Edges chipped, frail. Preserved in a custom built box covered in brown cloth with leather spine label. Wise p46. Rodd, 'when advertising the present pamphlet for sale [ ] asserted that it was a facsimile reprint of an alleged original edition of which the author was said to have printed twenty copies in 1816.' Wise argues that this is the first edition. His main points are 'One thing is certain, and that is that had Shelley printed such a pamphlet he would not have restricted its circulation to twenty copies. The motto 'We pity the plumage, but forget the dying bird' was taken by Shelley from Paine's Rights of Man, 1817, Part 1, p.24. 'He [Burke] pities the plumage but forgets the dying bird'. This clearly denies any impression of the Address dated 1816.' Princess Charlotte dies in 1817.

SHELLEY, Percy Bysshe. LETTERS OF PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY. £ 950.00

With an Introductory Essay by Robert Browning. London. Edward Moxon. 1852. pp. 8 of adverts (uncut), vi, (ii), 165, advert leaf. 12mo. Original cloth, spine faded. Half title present. Wise p 33 (Browning). Wise p74 (Shelley). Broughton, Northup & Pearsall A182. Ehrsam. Major Byron. This is the first edition of the Browning Essay unfortunately the Shelley Letters are mostly spurious and from the pen of the forger who styled himself Major George Gordon de Luna Byron. Edward Moxon bought twenty three letters at a Sotheby & Wilkinson sale in May 1851. The vendor of the letters was the bookseller Wiiliam White who had obtained them, with other items, from G. Byron. This book is made up of Moxon's twenty three letters plus another two. Sir Francis Palgrave realised that Letter XXI to William Godwin from Florence was 'cribbed from an article by me on that city published in the QR. Even a misprint is ignorantly preserved by the fabricator of the correspondence'. and informed Moxon of this. Moxon suppressed the book and recalled copies held by booksellers. The two genuine letters are No. V to James Lawrence & No. XXIII to John Keats.
