Edinburgh: Robert Cadell, 1838. 1st Edition. Leather. 7 vols. A complete set of seven hardcover books bound in full brown leather. Marbled foredges and five raised bands on each spine. Edges scuffed, marring the gilt detailing on the spines, but the spine labels are still clearly legible. Scant foxing and mild age-toning to the pages, but otherwise, text unmarked and binding secure across the set. Item #177533
