Boston, Lincolnshire: Robert Roberts, 1875, 1876. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Three octavo volumes bound by Zaehnsdorf in smooth green calf, tooled with gilt borders and elaborate gilt floral designs in the spine compartments. Labels in deep red, lettered in gilt. t.e.g. Gilt inner dentelles with marbled endpapers. This set is from the very scarce large paper edition of only 50 copies. Signed with hand written description by the publisher to the verso of the half-title in each title. Spines very slightly faded to a paler green. On Choyce Drollery there is a small rectangular patch of fading to the top left corner of the front board. Still, an extremely lovely copy of this scarce three volume set.
