Alexander Gilchrist
Life and Works of William Blake
Macmillan, 1880. New and enlarged edition in two volumes in original blue cloth with elaborate pictorial cover illustration and titling in gilt, designed by Frederic Shields. This set is in near fine condition. The boards are bright and retain all of the gilt work. The spines are in good order. The top of the spine of volume 2 is a tad soft. There is a contemporary previous owner's name on the front free end paper of each volume. There is very mild and occasional foxing marks on the odd page. The front free end papers of both volumes are browned. Otherwise the pages and plates are clean and free from any other marks. Overall it is a very nice set packed full of illustrations and rare in this condition.
Bookseller: The Plantagenet King [UK]
