Guy Mannering (Vol 1 & 2) and The Antiquary (Vol 2)

£29.99

Product description

Three volumes of the full set of Waverley novels by Sir Walter Scott, published in 1829 in Edinburgh. In the series, they are numbered as Vol. III, Vol. IV, and Vol. VI (this last apparently quite rare).

Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet FRSE FSA Scot (1771–1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, poet, playwright and historian. Many of his works remain classics of both English and Scottish literature. Famous titles include Ivanhoe, "Rob Roy", "Old Mortality", "The Lady of the Lake", "Waverley", "The Heart of Midlothian", "Ivanhoe" and "The Bride of Lammermoor". Although primarily remembered for his extensive literary works and his political engagement, Scott was an advocate, judge and legal administrator by profession, and throughout his career combined his writing and editing work with his daily occupation as Clerk of Session and Sheriff-Depute of Selkirkshire.

Our three books are in only fair general condition, their marbled boards and red half-leather binding worn and rubbed generally; part of the spine of Vol IV is missing, as are all the spine labels which would have had the titles printed on them. The gilt spine decoration, however, is surprisingly bright. All textblock edges marbled (faded). Inside, marbled endpapers match the exterior, and are generally bright and undamaged. Bindings generally firm with no loose pages; only the halftitle page of Vol IV is part-detached. Blank pages at front and back foxed, but no migration into the body of the books. Frontispieces and title pages badly browned. Pages clean and bright with no markings.
