SCOTT, Sir Walter. ~ The Lord of the Isles. Edinburgh: Adam and Charles Black, 1857.
8vo (202 × 128 mm), pp. 367, , engraved frontispiece and additional title (the former foxed), numerous wood engraved illustrations. Publisher’s green cloth, blocked in blue and red, stamped in gilt and blind. Extremities rubbed, hinges cracked but holding. A very bright copy.
A good example of splendid A. and C. Black publisher’s binding, the design almost certainly by John Leighton. The binding was offered in several colours: red, green and blue, some with additional blocking in blue or red. This variant is perhaps the most elaborate, in three colours.
