AYTOUN (William Edmondstoune).

Lays of the Scottish Cavaliers and other Poems.

Woodcut illustrations throughout by Adam, Dalziel, Thomas, Thompson, Linton, Evans, Adam, Whymper, Patterson, Cooper and Green.

Small 4to. [252 x 183 x 30 mm]. [7]ff, 268pp. Bound in contemporary light tan goatskin over slightly bevelled boards, the covers tooled in gilt with a fillt and thin roll border and panel with a large floral and frond ornament at the corners. The spine divided into six panels, lettered in the second, the others tooled with a flower head within a geometrical compartment, the turn-ins tooled with gilt rolls, marbled endleaves, gilt edges. (Slight variations in the colour of the leather).
Edinburgh: [by R. Clark for] William Blackwood and Sons, 1870.

The endleaves are a little spotted and there is the odd stray spot in the text, but it is a very good copy. The binding has survived remarkably well considering its light colour. First published in 1849 and frequently thereafter.
