LOVELY SET OF THE WORKS OF CHARLOTTE YONGE

YONGE, Charlotte. Works. Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1855-91. Twenty-four volumes. Early three-quarter brown morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. $1200.

Lovely set of the works of Charlotte Yonge, from the Tauchnitz Collection of British Authors.

Yonge published over 160 titles, and this set includes many of her most significant works, including Heartsease, The Daisy Chain and The Clever Woman of the Family. Particularly popular were her novels of contemporary life, whose “amazing success… when they were published is beyond modern comprehension… Her dialogue is inspired, and is infinitely better than Anthony Trollope, with whom she may most justly be compared” (Kunitz and Haycraft, 676).

A very handsome set of the works of one of the 19th-century’s leading female authors.
