About this Item

Putnam published so much Irving over such a long time that it makes your head spin! I have heard that only three men understood the situation but that one went mad, one died, and the other won't tell. The publisher particularly liked to put out different forms of the Works - they range from 40 volume sets to very modest ones The set being offered was probably a 20 or 21 volume issue from the 1860s. 18 vols. of this number are offered. One of the strengths of this offering is the fact that it includes two good subsets - 3 vols. on the Life and Voyages of Columbus and the first four volumes of The Life of George Washington. Other favorites include Bracebridge Hall, Astoria, Granada, Alhambra, and the Sketch Book. The full listing will be provided on inquiry. The internal condition of the books is very good with only light toning. Each volume has one or two nice frontis plates. The range of book length runs from about 350 to 550 pages. All volumes are bound in leather with marbling on the covers, end papers, and page edges. The spine is divided into six compartments by bands. Four compartments have gilt decorations and two have black labels with Irving's Works and volume number and the title of the contents. The spine conditions vary - most are good but some have end problems and four have label issues. Modest work on these problems and leather waxing would make this a handsome addition to any shelf. Additional postage. Bookseller Inventory # 001919
