Letters from a Walking Tour.

NY: Grolier Club, 1995. Small quarto. 79pp. One of 225 copies. Tipped-in frontispiece portrait of Keats by Charles Brown, a tri-fold facsimile letter from Harvard's Keats archives, and a map showing the route of Keats' walk. The walk in question was a 2000-mile tour of the English Lake District and Scotland, which Keats undertook in 1818 with Brown. The letters amount to a bold account of the British landscape, intermixed with anecdotes, jokes, and the poet's philosophizing. Edited by Jack Stillinger. Calligraphy, map, and design by Jerry Kelly; printing by Daniel Keleher at Wild Carrot Letterpress. Bound in full blue silk with leather spine label, and housed in slipcase with marbled paper sides. Fine. Item #28342
