London: Hughs, 1789. 8 volume set, 8 3/4 inches tall. A wonderful late 18th century straight grain morocco with gilt bands on a smooth back with fine gilt tooling to the panels. The initials M.W. embossed in gilt to the upper boards are framed within a series of gilt fillets. All edges gilt. The green of the boards has slightly faded on the spine and there is some rubbing to the heads and tails but with no splitting or loss. From the library of Michael Walker of Eastwood Hall whose letter, recommending this set to his niece, dated 1791 is tipped onto the second blank. A super copy of this tall and finely printed edition.
