Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1925-51.
These are the first versions of Sanditon, Lady Susan and the juvenilia that were edited by R. W. Chapman for the Clarendon Press, 1925-1951. Four volumes, published individually but uniformly bound in blue/grey paper boards with paper spine labels. The publisher supplied extra paper labels, tipped in at the back, should the originals fall off (three vols contain even the extras). VERY GOOD condition, remarkably clean.
