14 Volume complete set of books by Alfred Tennyson. This beautiful little set is bound in full rich red leather and has all edges gilt and gilt lettering on the spines. This appears to be a completely matching set and appears to always have been together. Volumes 1 through 11 are dated 1878. Volumes 12 and 13 are dated 1877. Volume 14 is dated 1881. Volumes 1-13 all say "The Works of Tennyson in Thirteen Volumes", so, obviously the 14th volume was added by the publisher in 1881. There are no illustrations. Each individual book measures approx. 5 1/8" tall by 3 3/8" wide by 3/8" deep. This is a beautiful set and all volumes look the same have aged the same. So, almost definitely this set came from the publisher as you see it.
This is a beautiful set.
