FULL 18TH CENTURY RUSSIA CALF

The Works of Horatio Walpole, Earl of Orford.

London: Robinson, 1798. 5 volume set, 12 inches tall. A rather splendid full russia calf with gilt raised bands, very elegant gilt tooling to the panels. Triple gilt fillets, corner tools and a lovely blind tooled roll frame the boards. With the armorial bookplate of Lord Kinnaird of Rossie Priory. Sporadic foxing. As is often the case with heavy full russia calf of this period the joints are fragile, there are a couple of splits but the volumes are all still firm and solid and look excellent on the shelf. With 9 fine engraved portraits.
