    First edition. Three small octavo volumes. vii, 322; 332; 346. Later state of the first edition, with "there" instead of "their" at the end of line 20 on p. 17 of Volume II; and semicolon after the first "Co." of the imprint on the title page of Volume I. (Todd 156Aa). Contemporary gilt-stamped half polished calf over drab boards. Leather worn; joints splitting. Hinges cracked, but bindings all tight. Occasional minor spotting. Two inked names to front pastedown of Volume I, with date 1824. Each volume in its own chemise, all of which are housed in a worn gilt-stamped quarter leather book-backed slipcase. A not unattractive set in very good condition. As was common, Scott's name did not appear in these volumes; he was referred to only as "the author of 'Waverley, Kenilworth,' &c."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
