Here we have a lovely three volume set of the Poetical Works of Percy B Shelley, the famed Romantic poet who drown off the coast of Italy at a very young age. These volumes are bound in marbled board, with beautiful leather corners and spines. They are in very good condition, and while not dated, they are clearly 1885-1910. They are edited by Mrs. Shelley and include a note by her. Mrs. Shelley, the poet's wife Mary was also a the well known author of the novel, Frankenstein. Both the fronts and ends pieces of these volumes are marbled, and the books measure 7 and 1/2 inches North to South, 5 inches East to West, and are 1 inch thick. These are beautiful!
