The plates are engraved by Henry Moses from original copper etchings made by Moritz Retzsch for the German edition, the most enduring illustrations to Faust of the nineteenth century.

In original boards which are rubbed and worn at the corners. Leather spine is rubbed but with no cracking at the joints. Endpapers good. 26 of the 27 plates are present (missing plate 1). All plates good but with some dirts and spotting around the outer margins (we show examples of this in the images provided). Although incomplete still scarce.
