A Catalogue of the Royal and Noble Authors of England, Scotland, and Ireland; with Lists of their Works.
London: John Scott, 1806. Five volumes, octavo; with 149 engraved portrait plates; contemporary binding of dark green straight grain morocco, ornately gilt; armorial bookplates. A very attractive set of this major literary work by Walpole: although his literary reputation rests principally upon his voluminous correspondence, he also produced a number of substantial books, including this with its useful collection of biographical accounts and engraved portraits. As a carefully researched and honest assessment of the literary contributions of a significant number of lesser-known writers (figures whose rank in society was generally greater than their reputations and abilities as authors), the work is of particular value. The set offered here is a appealing example of a decorated binding from the early nineteenth century. An excellent set.
