Size 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall

Publisher Chandos Street, London Marcus Ward & Co. 1878

Inventory No. 308849

An attractive uniformly bound full set, in half red calf with marbled sides and matching marbled textblock edges and endpapers. Five raised bands to spines, gilt tooling. Illustrated with engraved plates and vignettes. Light scattered foxing, mostly contained to prelims but some spots to other pages. 18.8 x 13cm. A few volumes have minor chips to the head of the spine and there are light rubs to extremities. Volume 3, Old Mortality, has some brown marks between pages 234-235 where there was an old news cutting used as a bookmark; Volume 5, Rob Roy, has a loose leaf (undamaged, so was probably misbound), pp. 119-122 + plate; one other leaf in Rob Roy is very nearly loose (again, no sewing holes so looks misbound), pp. 199-204. Some volumes are dated 1877, 1879, 1880; most are 1878. All bindings are firm (except the loose leaves already mentioned). All inner hinges are very good. No previous owner's names, inscriptions or bookplates. This set is LARGE AND HEAVY - a significant surcharge will apply to international orders as this set will cost a great deal more to send than our standard rate will cover. Shipping to some destinations may not be available - please enquire before ordering. NO additional charges for sending within the UK mainland. UK highlands, islands and N. Ireland may incur an additional charge.
