4 Vols. From the library of the Yorkshire heiress and book collector Frances Mary Richardson Currer, with her bookplate to the front pastedowns of all four volumes. Elegant full polished calf bindings by one of Frances Currer's favourite binders, 'J Mackenzie bookbinder to the King', three of four volumes lacking lettering pieces; marbled endpapers, gilt edge roll to boards; all edges of the text block marbled; brown silk bookmark to each volume. Foxing to bookplates and endpapers, otherwise a very good set. Frances Currer is regarded as the preeminent woman book collector of her era and also, perhaps, the inspiration of the Bronte sisters' pseudonym.
