GRAY (Thomas).

GRAY (Thomas).

The Poetical Works of Thomas Gray, Thomas Parnell, William Collins, Matthew Green, and Thomas Wharton. Edited by the Rev. Robert Aris Willmott. Illustrated by Birkett Foster & E. Corbould.

Frontispiece and seven plates.

8vo. [168 x 104 x 47 mm.] viii, 128, [4], 108, 91, [1], 44, 190 pp. Bound in contemporary dark green goatskin over slightly bevelled boards, the covers blocked in blind with a double fillet border and a Gothic window panel surrounded by a line of semi-circles. The spine divided into five panels, lettered in gilt in the second and at the foot, the others tooled in blind, glazed marble endleaves, gilt and gauffered edges.
London: George Routledge and Co, 1854.

Occasional light spotting but a very good copy. The Gothic window panel is the same as used on the volume of Thomson etc, but it is surrounded by an additional row of semi-circles, which goes to show that more than one block was required. With the bookplate of the Earl of Portsmouth (either Newton Fellowes, 4th Earl (1772-1854) or Isaac Newton Wallop, 5th Earl (18251891) of Farleigh House, Hampshire).
