THE PROFESSOR to which is added THE POEMS OF CURRER, ELLIS and ACTON BELL, Now First Collected.

First printing of the "cheap" edition. Publisher's original yellow cloth printed in black. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with a few nicks at the spine tips and some damage to the lower right corner of the upper board (small surface punctures to the cloth that do not extend through to the underside. The yellow cloth is darkened at the spine and board edges. The contents are entirely complete and without loose or torn pages. There is a contemporary small previous owner's name at the head of the title page and some light foxing throughout. 8 page publisher's catalogue to the rear. An attractive volume.
