First editions thus. Tall 8vo. Two separate titles, five total volumes (two Keats, three Shelley). A superb set of both Vale Press titles, sold here together, since bound similar, and obviously stored safely together by the same owner, as all five volumes in fine condition. Bound in publisher’s original beige smooth buckram cloth. Borders, initials and decorations, including a full-page decorative title in each volume of the Shelley, and double-page title spread in the Keats, by Charles Ricketts. Spine as near to original hue as ever seen. Browning to prelims in the Keats, but no browning in the three Shelley volumes, amazingly. Shelley all three volumes unopened.The finest set we have seen in some time. Seller Inventory # 3497
