An English Garner. Ingatherings from our History and Literature

£145.00

Product description

Volumes 1 - 7, published between 1877 and 1883, are in the original blue bindings with very ornate gilt and black decoration and lettering. Volume 1 is inscribed by the editor, an eminent professor of English, to "The Rev. Herbert Dudley Lampen and Mrs Lampen with the kind regards of Professor and Mrs Edward Arber. October 30 1906" The spines of these volumes are faded, especially vol 5, and the edges and corners are rubbed with some very small tears. Vol 7 has a small auctioneer's label glued to the front. Volume 8 was published by Archibald Constable and Co in 1896 and is probably not a first edition. Its binding is green cloth with gilt lettering and a small gilt impressed seal on the front cover. A white label from "Blackie &Son Limited Private Library" is stuck inside the front cover. There is cracking at the spine in several volumes but all pages are attached and overall bindings are tight. Pages are very clean. Due to their weight extra postage will apply.
