The Complete Works of William Hogarth

£149.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Superb and complete six volume set of The Complete Works of William Hogarth in a Series of One Hundred and Fifty Steel Engravings from the Original Pictures; With an Introductory Essay by James Hannay, and Descriptive Letterpress by Rev. J. Trusler and E. F. Roberts. William Hogarth, 1697 to 1764, was an English painter, printmaker, pictorial satirist, social critic, and editorial cartoonist. His work ranges from realistic portraiture to comic strip like series of pictures called modern moral subjects.
Each hardback volume has a contemporary brown ochre cloth cover, bevelled edges and black, red and gilt decoration and lettering to the spine and front. The page edges are in gilt. The 150 fine Sepia engraved plates are printed on one side of thick paper and protected by tissue guards.
All volumes are in good condition. The spine is tight and apart from sporadic foxing, the pages are mostly clean, however one of the volumes has a shadow from where it has been used to press leaves. There is some bumping from shelf wear to the spine ends, corners and edges of the cover, as well as dirt and scratch marks, but the bindings remain firm. A great set of books for those interested in eighteenth century art.
