This is a beautiful antique Victorian poetry book. The Poetical Works of Sir Walter Scott published in 1869 by Adam & Charles Black, Edinburgh. With a frontispiece and then six further black and white engraved illustrations. In a fine Bicker's binding of red polished calf leather with gilt tooling. Has a school prize crest in the centre of the front board and a prize plate on the front paste down. With marbled endpapers and page edges.

Contents: Memoir of Sir Walter Scott; The Lay of the Last Minstrel; The Lady of the Lake; The Vision of Don Roderick; Rokeby; The Lord of the Isles; The Bridal of Triermain; Miscellaneous Pieces.

Inside the pages are in superb condition, clean and tightly bound. Has the above-mentioned prize bookplate dated 1870 but no other writing or markings of previous ownership. All of the engraved illustrated plates are in very good condition.

The red leather binding is also in top order. With just a few light scuffs to the boards and one tiny hole on the front. Has gilt tooling and gilt dentelles around the outside edges, with the gilt school crest in the centre on the front. The spine has five raised bands. With ornate gilt decoration in each compartment and a leather title plate. Again with just the odd light scuff to the leather.
