Descripción:

Four volume set, bound in the original full leather (hardcover) with red and green leather spine labels with gilt lettering; spine stamped with elaborate decorations. The hinges and corners are showing signs of wear, with some small chips out of the spine extremities. The rear board of volume one is detached from the binding. Regardless, an attractive period (eighteenth century) binding. Illustrated with 15 engravings, including the frontisportrait of the author. Each volume has a unique title page, in that they list the contents therein. Vol. I: Containing the Seasons. Vol. II: Containing Liberty, The Castle of Indolence, and Poems On Several Occasions. Vol. III: Containing Sophonisba, Agamemnon, and Alfred. Vol. IV: Containing Edward and Eleonora, Tancred and Sigismunda, and Coriolanus. Volume 3 bound with the half-title page. Previous owner's name neatly in contemporary ink on the front pastedowns: Thomas Moss; as well as a few tiny ink stains. The edges of the first and last few leaves of each volume are affected by offsetting (browned) from the leather binding. Very minor foxing scattered throughout the set. Very minor staining to a small spot of the page edges in the first volume. A beautifully illustrated edition of this work. Thomson (1700-1748) published his blank-verse poems "Winter" (1726), "Summer" (1727), "Spring" (1728), and "Autumn" (1730). brought together as "The Seasons," which for the first time giving description of nature the leading place, and paving the way for the emotional treatment of nature by the Romantic poets.
