HOWITT, William Homes and Haunts of the Most Eminent British Poets

Richard Bentley, 1847.

First edition. 8vo. Two volumes. Attractively bound in contemporary tree calf, with tooled decorative gilt rules to each cover and to the spines five raised bands enclosing four gilt decorated boxes, with two gilt-ruled red morocco title labels. All edges marbled. Original blue silk page markers present. Marbled endpapers. Forty-one engraved vignettes by W. and G. Measom. A near fine set, externally bright and attractive, with just a modicum of wear towards the head of one spine, and internally fresh, save for some very light spotting to the initial pages.

A beautifully bound set of a work that tours the homes and watering holes of the best-known English poets including Shakespeare, Chaucer, Spenser, Byron, Shelley, Keats, Wordsworth and Tennyson.
