About this Item

60 volumes. The first collected edition. With engraved frontispiece and vignette title page in each volume. 12mo (in sixes), contemporary half calf and marbled boards gilt lettered on spines, gilt decorated raised bands. A superb set in exquisite condition. UNHEARD OF IN THIS CONDITION. Sir Walter Scott remains one of Scotland's greatest men of letters. His influence was as far reaching as his works were commercially successful. His poetry earned him an offer of the laureateship, which he refused, and was considered quite original in style among the Romantics. Scott is best remembered however for his novels which were highly popular in his time and which were extremely influential to both his contemporaries and his literary posterity. He is generally accredited with establishing the form of the historical novel and, according to V.S. Pritchett, the modern short story. His works were as avidly imitated as they were read and his influence is especially recognizable in the works of Ainsworth and Bulwer-Lytton. This is a beautiful collection of all of Scott's great poems and novels. Including of course such classics as "The Lady of the Lake" and "Ivanhoe". The frontispieces and title pages in POETICAL WORKS are all after J. M. W. Turner. The simple and tasteful bindings are very handsome and in whole the set is highly unusual in this state of preservation and completeness. Bookseller Inventory # 4095
