A beautifully preserved set in near fine condition with some rubbing to bindings and fine contents. A very nice set. "Like Burns, Hogg questioned and subverted aspects of the Scottish Enlightenment, and created a space in which the allegedly ?marginal? and ?primitive? culture of the old Scottish peasantry could speak with eloquence and power. Like Burns, Macpherson, and Scott, Hogg made a distinctive Scottish contribution to European Romanticism." - Oxford DNB. Please contact us for additional pictures or information. . Very Good. 1837.
