1 Brydges (Sir Egerton) Select Poems.
(Kent:) Printed at the Press of Lee Priory by Johnson and Warwick, 1814. 
4to. Burgundy boards, cloth spine, spine lettered in gilt: "Poems". This is a copy of SELECT POEMS which is bound without the title page, preliminary material and preface, and which begins with the divisional leaf bearing the title: 'Lines on the Words "This Beautiful Creation," which ocurred in A LETTER of January 13, 1813.' The contents page has been tipped in following this divisional leaf, and the rest of the book is intact, ending at page 40. Some wear to spine extremities, shelf wear to tips, creases to first two blank leaves, very good otherwise. A handsomely printed book. Sadly, the missing leaves contained all three of the wood engravings.This copy is from the stock of C.A. Stonehill, who have pencilled in this notation: "A copy obviously issued without the title. 1814. Privately printed in a few copies at the Lee Priory Press."
