An important work of Victorian poetry in exceptional condition
Men and Women

London: Chapman and Hall, 1855. First edition. Carter's binding variant "B" with Chapman and Hall in gilt at the base of the spine and other variations in stamping. Two octavo volumes: iv, 260; iv, 241, [iii]; complete. A beautiful, Fine set in the publisher's original blind-stamped green cloth with bright gilt on the spines. Top edge of page blocks a trifle dusty and spines slightly faded, but otherwise fresh and unread. Clan Barclay armorial stamp on the front end paper of each volume and a contemporary owner's name on the title page of volume one. Despite a lackluster reception, this title became one of the author's best known works and a lasting contribution to Victorian poetry. Rare to find in the original cloth and in such Fine condition. Housed in a custom slipcase with chemise. Fine (Item #1577)
