Letters from a Walking Tour

The first publication in the Grolier Club’s Fine Printing New Series, John Keats’s Letters from a Walking Tour reproduces 12 letters written during the poet’s tour of the Lake District, in which Keats provides striking passages on the mountains, waterfalls, and lakes he experienced on his journey and philosophizes on landscape scenery and the imagination. The edition also includes articles written after the journey by Keats’s companion on the tour, Charles Brown. Only 225 numbered copies were published of this beautiful edition, which was bound by Judi Conant in navy silk with a tan leather spine label titled in gilt, gray cloth, and a marbled board slipcase. Edited with a foreword and notes by the distinguished Keatsian Jack Stillinger, it includes a portrait frontispiece, map, and facsimile letter.
