About this Item

A complete 12 vol. set of the 27 tales that made up the Waverly Novels that were written from 1814 to 1831. Most were set in Scotland or England, a few in Europe, and two in the Eastern Mediterranean. The books do not have volume numbers and it is not clear why the publishers grouped the two or three titles in a volume together, but the titles of the works in a volume are stated on the spine and there are introductions for all. There is a frontis illustration and other plates in the books and the quality of their paper and of the text has held up quite well. There are several hundred pages in each volume. It is nice to view the illustrations and dip into a tale or two, but the handsome leather and marble bindings make the set desirable. There are no significant defects to these bindings - they are clean and bright. I find the marbled paper that contains " pink bubbles" quite attractive. The spines are divided into six compartments by gilt decorated bands. One of these compartments with a red field has Waverly Novels in gilt and the smaller compartment with a green field lists the names of the novels in that volume. All page edges marbled. The set was probably published in the 1870-1880 era. Additional postage. Bookseller Inventory # 001917
