The Works of Captain Marryat

The “Captain Marryat” edition of his works to include Rattlin the Reefer, Newton Forster, Frank Mildmay, Poacher, Percival Keene, Japhet, Dog Friend, Pacha of Many Tales, and Phantom Ship.

A stunning collection of 9 finely bound half calf volumes with beautiful intricately detailed gilt and tooled labels with matching marbled boards, page edges, and pastedowns + endpapers. Originally released in blue cloth in 16 volumes, likely as a subscription, this sale is for 9 of the titles. Published by George Routledge, London, undated. Printed in the late 19th century (c.1880-1890).

All 9 books in good sound condition with all boards firmly attached. Pages clean throughout all volumes. Perhaps the odd spot or mark to the odd page. Overall very good and handsome on the shelf.
