Seven volume edition, revised by the poet. Handsomely bound in contemporary full straight-grained green morocco. The boards ruled in gilt with decorative corner devices; the spines with five raised bands, compartments richly decorated in gilt, and with gilt red morocco title and volume labels. Board edges and inner dentelles also decorated in gilt. All edges gilt. Volume I with a steel engraved portrait frontispiece by W. H Watt after a painting by H. W. Pickersgill. Engraved armorial bookplate for the Honourable C.C. Neville to the front pastedown of each volume. A near fine set, the bindings square, firm and bright with a touch of rubbing to the extremities, a small scuff to the upper board of volume VII, and a few minor marks to the boards of the other volumes. The contents are clean and bright throughout, remaining free from foxing and inscriptions.
