It will be seen that the copy of the "Tale of Rosamund Gray"-the first book of which Lamb was the sole author-derives peculiar interest from the Birmingham imprint. As far as can be ascertained, all copies previously known have had a London imprint. Except for this variation in the title, the British Museum copy is identical with the above, which appears to be the very earliest issue of this "miniature romance."

Several of the stanzas, or portions of them, are re-written, and in the case of stanzas 17 and 74 there are two different versions. A collation with Mr. Buxton Forman's edition of Keats' Works also reveals other variations from the Poem as there printed. It was written during November and December, 1819, but although Keats composed no less than eighty-eight stanzas, he never completed it.—Catalogue. The Athenæum of June 14, 1902, p. 757, contains a letter from Mr. Buxton Forman relative to this manuscript, which he says has been dismembered since he saw and collated it several years ago.-ED.]
