Uniformly bound by Rivière and Son in full cream vellum with black leather title-labels, all edges gilt; boards very slightly bowed; numerous in-text illustrations plus engravings as called for; occasional light foxing (but confined mainly to the inner surfaces of the marbled endpapers, the binder's blanks and the first and last pages in contact with them); some offsetting from the plates; for all intents and purposes, a fine set with the Lionel Lindsay-designed bookplate of [Sir] James McGregor mounted on the pastedown of each volume.

Horace Walpole (1717-1797), fourth Earl of Orford, English author, letter-writer, politician, collector, architectural innovator ... but 'above all, a wit, a virtuoso, and a man of quality' (Dictionary of National Biography).
