The Essays of Elia and Eliana

6


Lamb, Charles. Bernhard Tauchnitz, Leipzig; 1869. 1st edition thus. Decorated full vellum. 371 pp. 18mo. Very good.


Uncommon vellum edition of Lamb’s two collections of essays, embellished with gilt borders and designs, and a small lamb. All page edges red, with ornate endpapers. Toning and light occasional wear to the boards, with mild scuffing to the shelfback. Inscription on the flyleaf. Very crisp, unmarked interior.
