Samuel Coleridge: The Voyage of Coleridge's Ancient Mariner

Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) was an English philosopher, critic and poet.

This edition was drawn & written down by Christoper Fiddes, and is his copyright in 1978. In the History of the QTP in 1987 Carr reported that he had published three editions; three have been seen. As the text and drawings were done by Christopher Fiddes, Carr's printer used the same plates for each impression but changed the colour of the cover and paper. There is no indication of the order in which they were published, so this is guessed.
