The Waverley Novels. With Introductory Essay and Notes by Andrew Lang.
Boston: Estes and Lauriat, 1893-4 - 48 volumes, octavo (225 × 145 mm). Finely bound in scarlet half morocco, spines gilt-tooled in compartments with gilt titles direct, marbled sides with gilt rules, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Bookplate and ownership stamp of Frederick E. Reed to each volume. Very mild cockling to some leaves but still superb set in excellent condition. Engraved frontispieces, vignette title pages printed on japon paper, and illustrated plates. Edition de Grand Luxe of Walter Scott's Waverley Novels, number 352 of 500 super-deluxe sets. Estes and Lauriat also issued an "edition de luxe" of 1,000 sets, though this is the far grander and more limited edition, presented here as a magnificently bound library set. Though the bookplates in this set are numbered, sequentially, vols. 16-63 (presumably because Frederick E. Reed had 15 other volumes, not included here, of Scott's poems and works from different editions bound with these Waverley Novels a single library set), this set nonetheless constitutes Estes & Lauriat's Edition de Grand Luxe of Scott's Waverley Novels, complete as issued.
