This is a very good and rare set of 5 volumes. 1835 John Macrone Publishing, London. NOTE: originally published as a SIX volume set, this set is MISSING VOLUME ONE. The set contains Volumes ll, lll, lV, V and Vl. It is a handsomely bound set in maroon hardcover boards with dark maroon leatherette quarter trim and corners. All three page edges are tipped in gold gilt and there is only very light wearing to the gilt as if commonly found in vintage gilt books. Each features a hubbed (raised) spine accent with gold title lettering, volume number and the year 1835 on each spine. There is barely a wearing to the gold lettering on the spines. 16mo book size or 4.5" x 6.25" as designed to be a "pocket book" for easy carrying and reading anywhere. NOTE ON PUBLICATION: there were several designs, some in black leather, some in green, from this publisher so this is an assumed First Thus as dated inside and out. Most likely the True First Edition is the black leather set. Each of the volumes in this set have marbled endpapers front and back.

This set of Milton's Poetical Works is a fine and rare set for any collector. There are two black and white illustrations as the frontispiece in each. The set was edited by Sir Egerton Brydges with "imaginative" illustrations as the frontispiece by J.M.W. Turner Esq.
The contents are as follows per volume:
Volume Two: Paradise Lost Book l - Vl,
Volume Three: Paradise Lost Book Vll - Xll,
Volume Four: Paradise Regained Books 1 - lV,
Volume Five: Remarks on Milton's Versification - Samson Agonistes - Comus - and Arcades,
Volume Six: L'Allergo and Il Penseroso, Sonnets, The Passion, Odes and more.
