Bodleian MS Shelley e.3

Bodleian Manuscripts Shelley MS e.3 was one of several notebooks that the Shelleys purchased in or near Leghorn (Livorno), Italy sometime between early May 1818 and early September 1819. It contains forty-three leaves, with fair-copy holographs for Prometheus Unbound II.475-499-III.4.204, and the second half of the Preface (with some text in Mary Shelley's hand), and a fair-copy holograph of “Ode to Heaven.”

For more detailed information about the bibliographical details of the e.3 Notebook, including provenance, paper, and watermarks, as well as the contents of each page, see Neil Fraistat’s discussion from pp. xvii-xxx of The Prometheus Unbound Notebooks.
