  7. First edition, first issue; 8vo (220 x 150 mm); 16 engraved plates (including additional title and frontispiece) by Hablot K. Browne, very occasional light spotting to plates but in the main, unusually clean and bright; near-contemporary half-calf over marbled boards, matching endpapers and edges, worn and rubbed at extremities but sound; otherwise a very good copy indeed.

  9. First editions, 6 vols, 8vo; small contemporary ownership name to each front free endpaper, else fine, publisher's orange cloth, printed dust-jackets, slight age-toning, otherwise a very fine set.
