Folio Society
A New Collector’s Edition
Four immortal poems by the genius of Romanticism

The most innovative and influential of all the English Romantic poets, Coleridge was also the least prolific. Yet what force of genius is contained in his most famous works! From the thrilling mystical power of ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’ to the visionary magnificence of ‘Kubla Khan’, these poems reshaped the landscape of English poetry and ensorcelled generations of readers. Over the years, numerous artists have been drawn to them. Now, The Folio Society presents a collector’s edition of four immortal poems by Coleridge with superb illustrations by one of the country’s leading wood-engravers, Harry Brockway.
