The Works of Thomas De Quincey.
Edinburgh: Adam and Charles Black, 1862. 15 volume set, 7 1/4 inches tall. A superb full Victorian calf bound set with gilt raised bands, extra gilt panels and contrasting twin labels. Armorial bookplate. Portrait. Best known for his 'Confessions of an English Opium-Eater', in which De Quincey's autobiography centres on the effect his laudanum addiction has on his life. A wonderful set of the works of this very influential writer.
