Title: Personal Sketches of His Own Times **** ...

Publisher: Henry Colburn. 1827 & 1832, London

Publication Date: 1827

Binding: Hardcover

Signed: Signed by Author(s)

Edition: First Edition.


Three volumes, full leather, marbled end papers and page edges, gilt edging and beautiful gilt designs on spines. This was originally published as a two-volume work in 1827 as stated on title page of vols I & II. However, a later work (1832) also published by Henry Colburn is described as 'Volume III' of three volumes. Bookplate of B.J. Burke on front end paper of each volume. The third volume has, what appears to be, an original letter from Sir Jonah Barington tipped in, complete with postage seals. The letter is SIGNED by Barrington. (I found no citations anywhere that included a facsimile letter i the third volume published in 1832. I also checked with three booksellers who had the same set publsihed in the same years by the same publisher and none of their 3rd volumes had such a letter, adding significantly to the assertion that this is an original, one-of-a-kind letter. Some light to moderate rubbing to leather at some corners and edges, missing the leather spine labels, but titles impressed into the leather under the former labels is still visible. Otherwise a very clean set in very good condition, overall internally bright and structurally sound. SELLING USED AND RARE BOOKS ON ABE SINCE 1997 AND OUT OF OUR BOOKSTORE SINCE 1988.
