12mo (5¼" x 7½"). 4 volumes. Vol I: pp. ; Vol II: pp. ; Vol III: ; Vol IV: pp. . Seventh edition of Vol I and II and fifth edition of Vol III and IV. Each volume has the vignette design after Burne-Jones on the title page and on the final page. Maroon half-morocco over maroon, cream, tan and gold marbled boards. Five raised bands with floral decorations in gold in each compartment; original ribbon markers; t.e.g. The Earthly Paradise has a rather complicated publishing history; Ellis released many editions, but the text of the first edition (1868- 1870) remained unchanged until 1890 (Boos, 2002); so the text for the editions in this set are an accurate representation of all four books of The Earthly Paradise. Boos, p. 33. A very good + set; Scarce in fine bindings.
