First edition. Three volumes. Beautifully bound in half navy blue morocco over marbled boards. Five gilt decorated raised bands and titles in gilt to the spines. Housed in a bespoke felt lined blue cloth slipcase. Silk page marker to each volume. Bound without the publisher's catalogue to the rear of volume one but retaining the advertisement for the third edition of Jane Eyre in volume three. No half-titles called for. An excellent near fine copy, the bindings square and firm, the contents well margined and without tears or loss. The pages with a few light spots or finger marks to the margins are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps.
The author's second book. [Smith 5].
