All are bound in royal blue buckram with gilt titles to the spines and with their original dustwrappers and carry the bookplate of Godfrey Smith - possibly the author, journalist and former editor of the Sunday Times Magazine who died in 2017. The set is in very good condition, with just a little foxing noted to the front endpapers and pencil marks to the Preface of Under the Greenwood Tree noted. The dustwrappers are in very good condition with a touch of spine fade.
Dealer Notes
A handsome set of Hardy novels, we believe full sets of this edition are very hard to come by.
