Title: The Complete Works of Sir Walter Scott [88 ...
Publisher: Robert Cadell
Publication Date: 1829
Book Condition: Very Good
Edition: First Edition.
Edinburgh, 1829-1836. 8vo, 88 volumes, contemporary polished calf. Finely bound by an unknown contemporary binder with spines in five compartments, gilt inlays at spine, gilt-tooled boards, marbled endpapers and page edges, morocco labels at spines. A remarkable complete set of Sir Walter Scott's works, published by Robert Cadell in Edinburgh. Complete in 88 volumes, including Scott's prose, poetry and novels. A near fine set, with most volumes showing some wear and loss to spine at heads and heels. A few stray scuffs and chips to bindings at spine. A few hinges tender but all holding, with no boards detached. Some minimal normal foxing to frontis and title pages, some light dust residue to tops of pages, contents generally fine. This complete set has turned up at auction twice in the last forty years, but never in a full leather contemporary binding. Please contact us for additional pictures or information.
