London: Henry Colburn and James Duncan, 1826-1829. Five volumes, complete. Second edition, enlarged of volumes one and two, first editions of volumes 3,4,5. Later blue cloth, burgundy leather labels, gilt. Half-titles and errata leaves present where called for (Wise and Wheeler, 20, 21). Two pages of ads (H. and E. Sheffield, London) bound at the end of volume three. Leaves measure 5 1/2 x 8 3/4 inches. The fourth volume carries the extra half-titles and titles. But it also carries two extra paper spine labels, tipped to signature NN, not called for by Wise and Wheeler. The extra paper labels read differently than the ones on the primary binding (see John Carter, Binding Variants, 1932, plate XI); they read "(bold rule) / (rule) / Imaginary / Conversations / of / Literary Men / and / Statesmen / (squiggle rule) / (rule) / (bold rule). A little rubbing, some stray marks, with a little light foxing. A Very Good set.
Title: Imaginary Conversations of Literary Men and Statesmen.
