Good Words: Six-Volume Set

600.00

Good Words, 1865 to 1870 : 1867 includes the first appearance of Guild Court by George MacDonald. Strahan, London, six-volume set...

In the 1867 volume, in serialized magazine format, the first literary appearance of Guild Court. Published when MacDonald was a young 43, the same year Dealings with the Fairies was born! A few years prior to his North American tour, he was  a literary tour-de-force in Britain! 

The set is a Victorian Treasure Trove, illustrated with artists including Edward Hughes, nephew to Arthur. First appearances by many British authors in magazine format, beyond breath-taking and rare!

Volumes are in Good to Very Good condition, some minor binding issues, all with strong spines. Extremely rare to find these six in a uniform setting for sale! Handsome shelf additions! For the serious MacDonald collector, you will likely not come across this offer again anywhere!
