Walpole, Horace (ed. Cunningham, Peter)

The Letters of Horace Walpole, Earl of Orford. Edited by Peter Cunningham. Now First Chronologically Arranged. In Nine Volumes. (originally stated to be in 8 volumes, it became 9 by the end).

Published: London: Richard Bentley, 1857.


First edition thus (an earlier 6 volume set had been published in 1840). Original purple cloth with gilt titles to spsisne and gilt crest to front, and blind-stamped decorations. With 39 engravings in plates, as called for, plus engraved title page vignettes.

A Very Good set. Some old water staining to about half of the plate margins, occasionally onto the image, though pages generally unaffected.
