The Poet's Works in Chronological Order, from the text of Professor Delius. Introduction by F. J. Furnivall. Twenty-second Thousand. n.d. (ca. 1880s). Thick octavo (6x8"), 1056p. Illustrated. Frontispiece engraving of Shakespeare with facsimile of his signature. Handsomely bound in beautiful brown tree calf leather with fine gilt Greek key borders, the spine in six gilt-decorated panels with gilt title on black leather label; all edges gilt, marbled endpapers with finely detailed vine-leaf-and-flower gilt dentelles. The tree calf covers are in Very Good+ condition, only slight edge and corner wear and faint surface scratches but with bright, richly-colored, and dramatic branching of the tree pattern! Edge gilt is very good, text is clean and un-marked. The text block is entirely tight and sound but has cleanly separated from the front cover as have the ffep and two leaves preceding the title page. The blank flyleaf has a handsome calligraphic Christmas presentation "to Miss Alice B. Johnson from A. B. Veal"(sp?) dated 1885. With a repair to the front inner hinge this would be a very nice leather-bound Victorian gift edition of the Leopold Shakespeare. Carefully wrapped and protected for shipping. (Non-USA order must select Priority shipping.). Bookseller Inventory #
