BEAUTIFULLY BOUND EIGHT-VOLUME BURNS SET

BURNS, Robert. The Works of Robert Burns, with His Life, by Allan Cunningham. London: James Cochrane, 1834. Eight volumes. Small octavo, early 20th-century three-quarter olive morocco, gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. $2400.

Splendid 1834 set of Burns' complete works, with lovely steel-engraved frontispiece and vignette title page in each volume, handsomely bound in morocco-gilt by Worsfold.

"When this edition was first announced, six volumes, it was calculated, would contain all that was desirable to publish of his Writings. But the success of the first volume opened new sources of intelligence," thus explaining the editor's decision to expand the set to eight volumes (Gibson, 46).

A handsome set in fine condition.
