16 volumes, 8.5 inches tall. A splendid run in a classic Victorian half calf with gilt raised bands, twin labels and floral gilt tooling including the ever present shamrock to the panels. Slightly rubbed and bumped. Profusely illustrated throughout with full page engravings by Phiz. Admired by Trollope and Dickens, Charles Lever's tales of Irish Life were hugely popular.
