LOVE PEACOCK, Thomas Novels (5 vols) Macmillan & Co., London, 1895-1897.
8vo. 5 vols. Original green-blue cloth, decorated with a sweeping peacock design in gilt to upper cover and spine, yellow and white peacock endpapers, all edges gilt; an attractive set in excellent condition, with some occasional minor foxing and spines slightly mellowed to a greener shade.
A complete set of novels by Thomas Love Peacock (1785 – 1866), an English novelist and satirist. This set contains all his novels (and one collection of verse), thus:
Maid Marian and Crochet Castle 
Headlong Hall and Nightmare Abbey 
Gryll Grange 
The Misfortunes of Elphin and Rhododaphne 
The books are bound uniformly with a stunning peacock motif overlaid on green, and are seldom found as a set, let alone in this condition.
