    [James Hogg]. Tales and Sketches of the Ettrick Shepherd [and]: The Poetical Works of the Ettrick Shepherd. Glasgow: Blackie and Son, [n.d., ca. 1838].

    Eleven small octavo volumes. Illustrated with engraved frontispieces and title-pages. Uniformly bound in nineteenth-century full tan calf, covers decoratively ruled in gilt, spines tooled in gilt, burgundy and black gilt morocco lettering labels, five raised bands, gilt board edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endleaves. Minor rubbing and soiling to bindings (especially to headcaps), bookplates partially removed from front pastedowns. Overall, a near fine set. James Hogg (1770-1835) was considered one of the finest Scottish poets of the nineteenth-century, having achieved great literary success with virtually no formal education.
