“Mr. Frederickson, about 20 years ago conceived the idea of having the larger portion of his buying concentrated on Shelley. We say…that this Shelley library is the most remarkable ever collected in this country” (Preface signed by Ernest Dressel North).

Among the great rarities is Mary Shelley's copy, inscribed from Shelley of “A Philosophical Poem”(1813) with her notes and two manuscript verses describing her love for Shelley. There are also several autograph Byron letters, Coleridge autograph letter and poem, 24 pages of the original manuscript of Irving's “Life of Washington,” two Keats letters (each 2 pages), several Lamb letters, a Poe letter discussing “The Mystery of Marie Roget,” about 65 Shelley letters, and several Mary Shelley letters. An amazing collection.
