Edinburgh & London: Archibald Constable & Hurst, Robinson, and Co., 1824. This is a Very Good (minus) set (3 volumes) of the First Edition. Marbled covers and endpapers; black leather tips and spine. The spine is nicely decorated in chestnut, with green and red labels, all filled with gilt. Clean text; 310 pages, 325 pages, and 323 pages with four pages of publisher's ads. The text is still very bright, with only occasional foxing throuout. All volumes are rubbed at the margins, mostly at the foot of the spines; Volume One has a 1" chip at the head. Several gutters are split, but all holding well. This set would be graded higher, except that all boards are somehow warped into a convex shape. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. First Edition.. Half-Leather. Very Good/No Jacket. First Edition.
