Twelve volumes. Demy 8vo (22cm). Sixty-six photographic and print reproduction plates including frontispieces. Original publisher’s cloth; lettered and decorated in gilt to spine; in their dust-jackets; top edges dark green except for two volumes with uncut gatherings and thus no colour; one dust-jacket has a chunk missing from bottom spine; a near-fine set, scarce in dust-jackets.
The complete novels of the inimitable Brontë sisters, including Elizabeth Gaskell’s biography, unusual in dust-jackets. Next year, 2018, is the bicentennial of Emily’s birth.
