The Works of Lord Byron: With His Letters and Journals, and His Life, by Thomas Moore, Esq. (Complete in 17 Vols.)

London: John Murray, 1832-33. Full leather. An impressive example of this original compilation of the works of Byron, complete in 17 volumes and bound --and signed-- in a full, mid to late 19th century red morocco by Root & Son of London. Each uniform volume has bright gilt-rule at the panels and 5 raised bands along each spine, with fine, decorative gilt-tooling at the compartments and offsetting leather title labels. All of the volumes are at least VG+ (or better) and only 1 or 2 show the lightest of wear along the spines and just a touch of staining at the panel edges. There's a bit of forgivable foxing at the endsheets but each volume is free of bookplates or writing or any other markings to the text. Each volume also includes a wonderful engraved title-page (all different engravings, each by E. Finden) which PRECEDES the printed title-page. 16mos, top-edges gilt, lovely marbled endpapers. Very Good +. Item #13810

Price: $1,500.00
