Large paper copy. One of a very small number printed in this format for friends of the author. With an early facsimile copy of the author’s bookplate to the front pastedown. Very scarce. London Lyrics was first published in 1857, with various revisions and expansions over the succeeding years.

Octavo. Original red buckram, rules to boards and titles to spine gilt. Proof wood engraved frontispiece by Randolph Caldecott and proof wood engraved tailpiece by Kate Greenaway on india paper. Endpapers browned, cloth lightly rubbed and a little faded, repairs to spine at the ends. Very good.
