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.
