In ink; two poems on each page of one single sheet : (S'ANA 0909) : first lines of each poem as follows: "Shelley! thy mind was as a noble bark"; "The loftiest poetic powers were thine"; "How wildly sweet the breatings of thy lyre"; "For thou hadst seen thine error and returned". Signed "Nemo Aug.t 183[-]" (last digit of date cut off). Tipped into Pforzheimer copy 3 of the first edition, first issue of Byron's Prisoner of Chillon. A partially erased inscription on the front free endpaper, in what seems to be the same hand as that in the "sonnets," examined in ultra-violet light, reads: "Julia R[ ] June 1824 / from Eliz[a] R[ ] / June 18 / 1817.".
