THE DOCTOR, & c. by (SOUTHEY, Robert.)


London.Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green and Longman. 1834-38. Five volumes. (All published in Southey's lifetime, though two further volumes were published in 1847, edited by Southey's son-in-law.) Contemporary - probably original - cloth with leather labels, gilt. Octavo. First editions. Some occasional light spotting and browning; bindings worn with bumped and worn corners and chipped labels and spines, and some splitting to the spine of volume one; else a very good set of all the volumes published during Southey's lifetime.Presentation set, inscribed in Southey's hand on the front free endpaper of volume one: 'With the Author's Comp's.' On the verso of the title page of volume one is printed in red ink, identical with that used to print the title itself, the name of Robert Southey's brother, 'Henry Robert Southey Esq. M.D.' This would have been done by the printer and it likely that individual copies were printed for presentation to all members of the family.
