[SURTEES, Robert].
5 volumes : Ask Mama -:- Plain or Ringlets -:- Handley Cross -:- Mr. Sponge's Sporting Tour -:- Mr. Romford's Hounds.

PLATES TOTAL : 79 of 80 steel plates, all hand-coloured. The plate lacking is from 'Plain or Ringlets'. In this volume the frontispiece called for is lacking, its place taken by the next one on the list. It is not found elsewhere in the book and perhaps was never issued. Each title-page also has a hand-coloured vignette. Red half-morocco and marbled boards, all edges gilt, very slight rubbing of corners and edges, trivial scattered foxing, a nice set, each with the book-plate of ARTHUR WILLSON CROSSE.

Bradbury, Agnew. London.
