First edition. Mill assiduously recorded his correspondence throughout his life. His letters to Comte and d’Eichthal had been published in the 1890s, and much of his correspondence with Spencer appeared in Duncan’s Life and Letters in 1908; Elliot’s selection of material, previously unpublished in the main, notably includes Mill’s letters to Carlyle, John Sterling and Lytton Bulwer.

2 volumes, octavo. Original dark red cloth, spines lettered in gilt, front boards ruled in blind. Portrait frontispiece with tissue guard to each volume, 4 plates, one folding leaf of manuscript facsimile. Bookseller’s ticket (Blackwell’s) and near-contemporary ownership inscription (partially effaced in vol. I) to front pastedowns. Spine-ends lightly bumped, tips very faintly rubbed, internally clean and the cloth clean and fresh. An excellent copy.
