Without doubt the greatest illustrated version of the poem ever created, Doré`s superb engravings complement the romantic and fantastic elements in the poem exactly. The terrifying storms, ice and famine are shown in great sweeping scenes of high drama, beautifully engraved and filled with visual detail.
This is one of Doré's later works with all his extraordinary skills as an illustrator on show especially in his depictions of the vast spaces of open water, dramatic seascapes, storms, whirlpools. There are coastal scenes, angels, sea monsters, the figure of death, the icy regions of the earth, as well as land based scenes such as the wedding feast, an evocative forests and darkened paths of the later stages of the poem, when the Mariner passes "like night from land to land" to tell the tale.
The full text of the poem and its textual side annotations are shown. This is an unabridged, slightly rearranged republication of the 1878 American edition with the text conforming to the authoritative 1834 edition.

Illustrations: 42 full page engravings at original size.
