Boston: Samuel H. Parker, 1828. A two-volume collection of stories by the Scottish historical novelist (1771-1832); although not credited on the Title Page, Scott identifies himself in his Introduction. Volume I (198 pages) contains "The Highland Widow," "The Two Drovers," and "The Surgeon's Daughter." Volume II (242 pages) has only the novelette "The Antiquary. A Romance." These are Very Good copies of the First Edition Thus (Harper had published the year before), quite scarce in the Trade and with only one institutional holding. Leather bound with stamped gilt letting on the spine; books are rubbed at the margins and are lightly foxed throughout. The paper remains supple, and they are quite readable, The FFEP of Volume II has some loss. Withal, although worn, these remain attractive copies of an uncommon Scott title. Size: 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. First Thus.. Full-Leather. Very Good/No Jacket. First Edition.
