The British Classics - 34 Volumes Complete - The Tatler 4 Vols. ; The Spectator 8 Vols. ; The Guardian 2 Vols. ; The Rambler 4 Vols. ; The Adventurer 4 Vols ; The Idler 2 Vols. ; The Mirror 3 Vols. ; Citizen of the World 2 Vols ; Essays 5 Vols.
Printed by C. Whittingham for John Sharpe & W Suttaby 1804. 34 volumes complete. Published from 1804 to 1810. Virtually all of the title labels are missing, although all but one of the circular number labels are in tact. The gilt on the spines is very good, and the boards are all solid, although they have been reback some time ago, and there is damage to several of the boards. Despite been a well used set, it is attractive, and more importantly complete, these volumes often turning up only as parts of the whole. The Tatler 4 Vols. ; The Spectator 8 Vols. ; The Guardian 2 Vols. ; The Rambler 4 Vols. ; The Adventurer 4 Vols ; The Idler 2 Vols. ; The Mirror 3 Vols. ; Citizen of the World 2 Vols ; Essays Illustrative of.... by Nathan Drake 5 Vols. (3 + 2) relating to all of the periodicals covered in the series. Most volmes have engraved titles as well as series titles, most have portraits, as well as other illustrations in the text. Volume 3 of The Mirror has some residual damp damage that has left some marking, and a bit of minor loss to the text. An attractive bunch. 102c
