London: Walter Scott. 1888


First English edition. Publisher's original blue cloth with titles in gilt to the upper board and spine. 349pp. 6 pages of publisher's adverts to the rear. A very good copy, the binding firm and the gilt bright. There is a little bumping and rubbing at the slightly rolled spine tips and a few light marks to the cloth. The contents are entirely complete and without loose or torn pages and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. The text block edge and the prelims are spotted and one page of adverts has a corner crease. A decent tight copy of the first edition in English.
