First edition edited by John Wilson Croker and “the best edition until superseded by the work of George Birkbeck Hill [1887]” (ODNB). This set has the additional volume of Johnsoniana (1836).

6 volumes, octavo (210 130 mm). Contemporary green half morocco, gilt banded spines, marbled sides, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Engraved portrait frontispieces, maps and plates. A few bumps and scuffs to bindings, some foxing but an attractive set.
