First continental edition, published the year following the first edition. Two volumes. Quarter calf over marbled boards with black morocco title labels to the spines lettered in gilt. Marbled endpapers. Very good copies, the bindings square and firm with minor rubbing to the extremities. The contents with toning to the endpapers are clean throughout and free from any previous owners' inscriptions or stamps. An excellent example of an uncommon edition.
Provenance: From the library of Martin Stone.
