Description

Victorian full leather publisher’s binding, tan calf embossed and decorated in brown and gold. All edges gilt. Volume I and II bound together, 400 and 368 pages respectively. Includes a memoir and critical remarks on his genius and writings by James Montgomery. Illustrated with 4 full page engraving [with tissue guards intact] and several vignette engravings in vol. II. Circa 1860-70. Very neat former owner’s name on blank verso of front brown coated end-paper. Covers rubbed, more so at extremities, and inner hinges cracked. Book is clean, with relatively little foxing, if any, reserved for the illustrations, and then mostly marginal. Covers still firmly attached and text clean and unmarked . A nice example of the single volume edition of this work in good or better condition.
