The Works
Edinburgh: Adam & Charles Black, , 1851-60. Comprising: The Prose Works, 28 volumes: The Poetical Works, 12 volumes: The Waverley Novels, 48 volumes: Lockhart's Life of Scott, 10 volumes. 98 volumes octavo (161 × 98 mm). Contemporary half calf, marbled boards, red and green morocco labels, gilt milled bands, compartments gilt with floral centre-tool, foliate corner-pieces, paired gilt and blind fillets to the spine and corner edges, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Each volume with engraved frontispiece and series title. A little rubbed on the boards, mild chafing at the extremities, a few head-caps a little chipped, two labels scuffed, light browning, but overall very good. A highly appealing set of Scott's works, the first volume of each section has a contemporary green morocco gift label: "Emily from her Father, 1861".
