The Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson.
London and New York: MacMillan and Co, 1890-1893. Small 8vo, 6 vols, [i-vii], viii-lix, 321; (6) [1-5], 6-538; [i-v], vi-viii, 326; [i-v], v-vi, 476; [i-v], vi, 520; (8), 1-260 pp. An exquisite set uniformly bound at the Doves Bindery. Full green morocco, covers ruled in gilt. Gilt-extra backstrips with the well-known tulip, heart-shaped leaves, dots and gougework stems. Each binding signed THE DOVES BINDERY 18 C-S 95. Volumes 1 and 6 with a few scattered blemishes on covers from contact with other books. Single headbands. All edges gilt. The first and last several leaves of each volume with gauffred edges. The E.W. Morris marbled endpapers are especially notable as Doves typically used only plain white endpapers. Very good. A fine example of the Doves Bindery. Tidcombe mentions two sets, one of which sold on 2 June 1899 to Scribners for £20, the other selling on 27 May 1899 to Sen. G.F. Hoar for 20 guineas. Tidcombe 389.
