1 Collins, Wilkie. THE WORKS OF WILKIE COLLINS. Volume 6 (The Moonstone [Part 1]).
Peter Fenelon Collier [New York]. No date. [Circa 1899]. Hard Cover Signed
580pp. sm8vo. Leather-textured dark green cloth with the covers blindstamped as if 1/2 leather. The spine is divided into 5 panels separate by a row of gilt dots between gilt rulings. The 1st (top), the 3rd & the 5th panels have a small, gilt rosette-type device composed of 4 darts alternating with 4 heart-shapes. The author's name is in the 2nd panel, the title & volume number in the 4th, & 'Collier' at the bottom - all printed in gilt. All edges blue speckled. Frontispiece + 14 other b/w engraved illustrations (unsigned). The 30 volume set comprising the 'Works of Wilkie Collins' was published under the 'Peter Fenelon Collier' imprint. This imprint was used until 1900 when it was briefly changed to 'Peter Fenelon Collier & Son' before becoming 'P. F. Collier & Son' the following year. Note that the title does not begin with 'Complete', presumable because the set omits his 'Memoirs of the Life of William Collins', ' Mr. Wray's Cash Box', non-fiction, numerous short stories, and the plays. It remains, however, the only set of Books approaching his complete works. 2 tiny rubbed spots on the right spine edge, a faint stain spot in the center of the back cover o/w Very Good, i.e. shows signs of careful use with no significant defects.
