Kenilworth & Quentin Durward
Sir Walter Scott, 1821 & 1823
SCOTT, Walter (1771-1832). Kenilworth [AND:] Quentin Durward. Edinburgh: Archibald Constable, 1821 & 1823.

Two first edition triple-deckers by Sir Walter Scott, both in excellent original boards. Two historical romances in the Waverley series, set in the 15th and 16th centuries. Scott did not acknowledge authorship of these novels, among the most widely read in Europe, until 1827.

Two works in six volumes, octavo. Half-titles (untrimmed, second title partially unopened). Original blue and drab boards respectively, printed paper spine labels (first title with light chipping to corners and spines, very fresh internally; second title neatly recased, some toning internally); uniform custom linen boxes. Provenance: Charles Watson (addressee of 19th century manuscript letter laid in to second title).
