(London: Edward Moxon, 1844), first edition, two volumes, Volume I: 280 pages, Volume II: 280 pages, brown cloth with title plates affixed to spine, 8vo (5.5" x 8"). Rambles is Mary Shelley's last full-length work. It is based on letters written during two extensive journeys she made with Percy Florence and several of his friends. In it, she blends Romantic values, female emancipation, and political advocacy. As a worldly and seasoned traveler, her narrative comments on war, national manners, historical perspectives, and political observations. Previous owner's signature on title page of each volume. Previous bookseller's price and notes on front pastedown of Volume I. Both volumes' front and back hinges cracked, head and tail of spine and label chipped, general soiling to brown cloth, and corners bumped. Textblock for each volume is clean.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
