London: Chapman & Hall, 1870. First Edition; as issued in six parts; some chips, tears, splitting and spots, restoration of spines and extremities with added paper; the “cork” ad is in the second part; a good to very good set in a custom cloth clamshell box. An original description was laid in, omitting pertinent details on condition, such as extensive repairs. In the interest of some attempt at ethical behavior, we have discarded this largely fictional contribution, which priced this set at a considerably higher price than we offer it at. A Haycraft-Queen cornerstone.
