Poetical Works Of Scott. Absolutely lovely book containing the works of Scott with other various readings with editor's notes and illustrated engravings. Complete in one volume. Issued New York, 1852 by George S. Appleton. pp. 840. The book has full brown leather, raised bands, spine gilt lettered, boards intricately embossed in relief, a.e.g. Engraved half title & frontis plus 6 other engraved plates throughout with tissue guard. The binding remains attractive. Spine and boards rubbed, front board is detached. Text block gently toned, scattered foxing throughout, but still quite clean. Otherwise remaining clean, tight, sound and well-preserved overall. Monumental volume, still very pleasing despite the rather unfortunate state of survival of the binding.Front and back cover detached. Gilt page edging.
