Abstract

The circumstances surrounding the creation of William Wordsworth’s Lines Composed a few miles above Tintern Abbey are given opposite the first lines of the poem, originally written on 13 July 1798 and first appearing in the now famous Lyrical Ballads (1798). Nicolas McDowall of The Old Stile Press designed and printed this book (one of 150 copies) using Bulmer type on paper made by Frances McDowall at Llandogo, Monmouthshire. Somewhat unusually, this limited edition has an international standard book number (ISBN), a system used for identifying books and found in almost all commercially printed books).
