London: Chapman and Hall, 1855. First edition. Fine. Carter's binding variant "B" with Chapman and Hall in gilt at the base of the spine and other variations in stamping. Two octavo volumes: iv, 260; iv, 241, [iii]; complete. A beautiful, Fine set in the publisher's original blind-stamped green cloth with bright gilt on the spines. Top edge of page blocks a trifle dusty and spines slightly faded, but otherwise fresh and unread. Clan Barclay armorial stamp on the front end paper of each volume and a contemporary owner's name on the title page of volume one. Despite a lackluster reception, this title became one of the author's best known works and a lasting contribution to Victorian poetry. Rare to find in the original cloth and in such Fine condition. Housed in a custom slipcase with chemise. Fine.
