London: Baldwin and Cradock, 1835. First Robert Southey edition. Leather. 15 vols. FINE CONTEMPORARY LEATHER BINDINGS. A set of fifteen hardcover books bound in full burgundy morocco with gilt-decorated, Regency-style spines with three raised bands each, and the boards decorated in gilt and blind. All foredges gilt, still shiny with only mild rub marks here and there. The ribbon page markers are very thin, all fraying and some detaching. Edges barely rubbed, and a few tiny dents here and there. The back cover of volume III is slightly bent at the top, causing a hairline crack in the board itself, visible on the rear pastedown. Faint residue inside each front cover where bookplates were removed. Foxing on and around the plates. Neat pencil notations in the margins of volume VIII, apparently made by a 19th-century owner. Light crinkling to the edges of the first several leaves in volume XI, which also has a light smudge in the margin of page 115. Otherwise, text unmarked and binding secure across the set. Item #176961

A beautiful, handsomely bound set in sturdy, collectible condition! Each volume contains an engraved title page and frontispiece. Each volume measures approx. 6.7" x 4.25"
