All edges marbled. Numerous head and tailpieces and in-text illustrations. Rare. The tales of Robin Hood were most famously collected and edited by Joseph Ritson. Ritson (1752-1803), antiquary, vegetarian, conveyancer, barrister, and subsequent psychotic, is best remembered for his work in the field of literature, particularly in the field of popular poetry, where, the DNB politely says, "he won his least disputable triumphs." He issued several anthologies in competition with Bishop Percy's "Ancient Reliques", but his greatest work was this "Robin Hood", in which, for the first time, were collected and explained all the extant allusions to the legendary outlaw. This particular edition, dedicated by the editor to Sir Walter Scott, was published with the omission of many of Ritson scholarly notes to leave a more readable and lively story. Robin Hood had just been reintroduced in Scott's extraordinarily popular "Ivanhoe" and this edition was published to complement that novel. . Wear at head and heel of spine. Corners bumped. Former owners name stamped on ffep. A very nice, tight copy. VERY GOOD. Woodcuts. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. lxxiv, 240 pp. N° de ref. de la librería 584
