    Frederick Schiller. The Works of Frederick Schiller: Historical Dramas, Historical, Early Dramas and Romances, Aesthetical and Philosophical, Historical and Dramatic and Poems. London: Bell & Daldy, 1872-1875. From the Library of Glenn Ford.
    Bohn's Standard Library edition. Six twelvemo volumes.

    Quarter leather with marbled boards and decoration and titles in six compartments between five raised bands on the spine. All edges marbled. Marbled endpapers. Boards show minimal shelf wear and the contents are remarkably sound. A near fine set.

    This handsome set is particularly interesting as each volume bears a gift inscription on the second front free endpaper dated Christmas 1877 to Fannie J. Chaffee, first wife of Ulysses S. Grant, Jr., from a "loving friend". From the library of American film actor Glenn Ford, with his armorial bookplate.
