“Autograph edition”; number 184 (throughout) of 750 copies, with, instead of the signed leaf that is tipped in in some copies, three leaves of original manuscript tipped in to the front of volumes 8, 11 and 12 (presumably in the volumes containing the stories to which they appertain).

16 volumes, octavo. Original tan burckram, white paper title labels to spines, fore- and bottom-edge untrimmed. Illustrated frontispieces and plates. Ownership inscriptions. Spines sunned, repaired tear to the cloth at foot of spine in volume 1, very slight rubbing to ends and corners; a very good set, sound and internally clean.
