THE POETICAL WORKS OF PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY.

London: Reeves & Turner, 1886. Second edition, with the notes of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. Thick 8vo. 2 volumes: xcvii, (3), 572; xiv, (2), 580, (14, publisher’s catalogue) pp. Frontispiece to each volume. Noted lawyer Clarence Darrow's copy, with his signature in both volumes, bookplate in volume one, and library stamp in volume two. Darrow (1857-1938) was best known for his defense of John Scopes in what became known as the Scopes "Monkey" Trial, Eugene Debs, arrested during the Pullman strike, and Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, tried and convicted of murdering a 14-year old boy, as well as for his work with the American Civil Liberties Union. Dark blue cloth (some wear to spine ends, particularly at the head of volume one), with beautifully gilt illustrated covers. Front joint of volume one split (approximately 3 inches at the top, and 1 inch at the bottom), short split to upper joint of volume two, and some separation at hinge of several signatures, but a very good copy with a wonderful association.
