Second Edition. Hardcover (Quarter Leather). Very Good Condition. Item #044429
6 volumes in modern calf backed marbled boards with added endpapers - attractively rebound. The Second Edition, the same year as the first (the first was oversubscribed - what publishers now refer to as second printing before publication) with the errors corrected. Scattered foxing, a few minor stains, the title for volume 3 a little grubby and trimmed - a clean, attractive set overall. Along with Tristram Shandy, Humphrey Clinker and Pamela, a foundation of the English novel (and only the epistolary novel Pamela, roundly mocked by Fielding with his Shamela in 1741, was published first).
