Essays. With Preface By THOMAS CARLYLE.

Original green straight-grained cloth with a leaf-garland border and central flowered vase on each board, the NICKISSON, LONDON, imprint at the foot of the spine and the binder's ticket of Westleys and Clark on the rear paste-down, the spine ends with trifling wear and the lower corners very slightly bruised, in all other ways a very good copy.

*James Fraser printed 750 copies and issued a number in his own binding and imprint in 1841. In early 1842, G. W. Nickisson took over the remaining sheets and issued a second tranche in his own binding and imprint, as above offered.
