London: John Murray, 1840. Original half-leather, gilt-lettered and decorated, and marbled paper boards. Includes reviews of Thomas Carlyle's "Works" (pp. 446-503) by William Sewell (Tarr 112, 1976), quoted extensively in Allibone, and of John Sterling's "Poems", 1839, (pp. 156-162), anonymous. The latter reviewer is delighted with Sterling's volume, though Carlyle, in his "Life of Sterling", 1851, asserted that "...no man hailed it with welcome; unsold it lay, under the leaden seal of general neglect; the public when asked what it thought, had answered hitherto by a lazy stare." Light wear, a Very Good volume.
