The Works of The Ettrick Shepherd. Centenary Edition.  Revised at the Instance of the Author's Family - 2 volumes, Thomson, Rev Thomas (Ed)
1 Thomson, Rev Thomas (Ed) The Works of The Ettrick Shepherd. Centenary Edition. Revised at the Instance of the Author's Family - 2 volumes
Blackie & Son, London, Glasgow and Edinburgh 1876 Hardcover Good No Jacket Hardcover 
Two volumes (complete). A robust, solid couple of books. Bound in three-quarters leather. The books are elderly and appear to have languished rather in storage. However, they are resolute and sound. The boards are much worn, marked, stained. They are steady. The leathered corners and spines are also much worn. The spines pleasingly fit. The leathered areas respond well to wax polish. Within, the gutters fore and aft are cracked. The security of the books are unaffected. Vol 1: 'Tales and Sketches' - a retiring copy. The contents are foxed throughout, there are age marks, some storage marks. Nonetheless, the pages are clear, tight, certain, alert. Vol II : - with a memoir of James Hogg (the Ettrick Shepherd) by the Rev Thomson - 'Poems and Life'. This volume also has foxing throughout. The early pages storage tide marks. The contents are firm, assured, clear, benign, amenable. fk
