There was a later Third Series published in 1846. Both sets are first editions.

All edges and endpapers marbled. All volumes contain their original silk ribbon page markers, some now detached. Corners rubbed, with boards exposed at corner tips. This is an important complication of early English documents including letters by Cromwell, Wolsey, Richard III, Thomas More, Henry VI, Tudor monarchs, Charles I and many more. pp. First Series: xviii, 310, [frontis.]; xiv, 308 [frontis. extending facsimile]; xviii, 399.

I + tissue guard]; xxiii, 544, [frontis.]. Some quite heavy foxing to frontispiece illustrations and facsimiles, plus a few other pages. A well-bound, sturdy and handsome set. Please note that these volumes are heavy and that postage outside of the UK will incur a substantial surcharge as they will cost more to send than our standard postage rate will cover.

83 Scribbles in The Margins: 50 Eternal Delights of Books
Gray, Daniel Bloomsbury London 2017 1408883945 / 9781408883945 First Edition Hardcover New New Book 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall 
New hardback with dust jacket. RRP 9.99. First impression. pp. xiii, 146. We lead increasingly time-poor lifestyles, bombarded 24/7 by petrifying news bulletins, internet trolls and endless noises. Where has the joy and relaxation gone from our daily lives? Scribbles in the Margins offers a glorious antidote to that relentless modern-day information churn. It is here to remind you that books and bookshops can still sing to your heart. Warm, heartfelt and witty, here are fifty short essays of prose poetry dedicated to the simple joy to be found in reading and the rituals around it. These are not wallowing nostalgia; they are things that remain pleasurable and right, that warm our hearts and connect us to books, to reading and to other readers: smells of books, old or new; losing an afternoon organising bookshelves; libraries; watching a child learn to read; reading in bed; impromptu bookmarks; visiting someone's home and inspecting the bookshelves; stains and other reminders of where and when you read a book. An attempt to fondly weigh up what makes a book so much more than paper and ink - and reading so much more than a hobby, a way of passing time or a learning process - these declarations of love demonstrate what books and reading mean to us as individuals, and the cherished part they play in our lives, from the vivid greens and purples of childhood books to the dusty comfort novels we turn to in times of adult flux. Scribbles in the Margins is a love-letter to books and bookshops, rejoicing in the many universal and sometimes odd little ways that reading and the rituals around reading make us happy. 306729
