John Grant. Edinburgh. 1905, 1905.
FIRST EDITION of the Thornton Edition. 12 VOLUMES. Large 8vo. Includes Mrs Gaskell`s life of Charlotte Bronte. Illustrated throughout with mono plates. All volumes are affected by some foxing to some of the pages but nothing serious and overall this is still a very good set.

Top edges gilt, others untrimmed. An attractive set of the most popular edition.
