Roxobel. In three volumes.
Mrs Sherwood:

Roxobel. In three volumes.

London: Houlston & Son, 1831. First edition. viii, 380; [ii], 513; ii, 464. Folding frontis to Vol l and guarded frontises to Vols II & III: some soiling or foxing to frontises and guards. Ownership name in ink to half-title of Vol I, and in pencil to title pages of Vols II and III. Smudge to final page of Vol I: contents of all vols otherwise clean. Vol I has yellow endpapers and uncut edges, is bound in contemporary dark brown grained cloth decorated in blind and titled in gilt; Vols II & III have indigo endpapers, trimmed and tinted edges, and are bound in a lighter brown cloth with bevelled boards, decorated in black and with gilt titles, spine ends puckered, with small nicks to spine head of Vol II. Vol I, being untrimmed, is slightly larger. Vols II and III, although also giving only 1831 as the publication date, have the appearance of being reprints, as they are printed on a slightly toned paper stock which may be later than that of Vol I. A very nice, though unmatched, clean and firm set. Very Good+.
