[The only copy that has ever occurred for public sale, and only three others are known. (See the Athenaum, December 12th, 1903, page 797.—Ed.) It is a presentation copy from the printer, with the following autograph inscription on the fly-leaf: "To Mr. Perry. This Poem is given with respectful compliments of Chas. Phillips." Collation: Title, one leaf; contents, one leaf; text pages, 5-64 (or B-I 2 in fours; size of this copy, g% by 5^.—Catalogue. This copy had been in the library of Mr. Nichols for many years, and is said to have been acquired by him for a few pence. "Victor" and "Cazire" stand respectively for Percy Bysshe Shelley and Elizabeth Shelley. The existence of this book was unsuspected till 1859, when Dr. Garnett came across a passage in Stockdale's Budget, 1826-27, which he followed up, and amplified in an article which appeared in Macmillan's Magazine for June, i860, under the title of "Shelley in Pall Mall." It seems that in September, 1810, Stockdale received 1,480 copies of the "Original Poetry" from the printers at Worthing whom he had presumably paid off, Shelley being unable to settle their account. These he retailed at 3s. 6d., advertising the work in "nearly all the London papers of the day." The correspondence between Shelley and Stockdale appears in the issue of Macmillan's Magazine referred to and in some recent editions of Shelley's letters. As [,480 copies were received by Stockdale, and some at least must have been sold, it is highly probable that considerably more than four copies are in existence somewhere. The first was discovered in 1898 by Mr. V. E. G. Hussey, grandson of the Rev. Charles Grove, brother of Shelley's Harriet Grove. It is noticed in Literature, October 22nd, 1898, page 362.—Ed.] 655 Shelley (P. B.)
