About this Item

3 volumes. First Edition, with all half-titles present. 8vo, contemporary half tan calf over marbled boards, the covers with borders tooled in blind, the spines with raised bands, gilt stopped, separating the compartments which are elaborately decorated with full gilt emblazoned panels incorporating dense border tools and central ornamental tools, two maroon morocco lettering pieces to each volume, stamped in gilt, blue end-leaves. xvi, [second half-title], 315; [iv], 332; [iv], 370 pp. A handsome set, beautifully preserved in its original contemporary calf bindings, internally, very clean, and with a little evidence of age, the contemporary bindings unusually bright and as fine. A SCARCE AND EXCELLENT WORK. This set with all half-titles as is often not the case. Sir Walter Scott was considered to be the inventor of the historical novel and the success of his Waverley series was immediate and long lasting throughout the English speaking world.
