London: T. Fellowes; F. and J. Rivington; E. Hodgson, et. al. 1857. Full Leather. Very Good binding. Item #4550
Octavo. Vol. I: xvi, 482, [2, (errata)]; II: xii, 571, ; III: xii, 407,  pp. New Edition. Contemporary leather bindings, in full calf with morocco title and volume labels on heavily tooled spines; double fillet border around the perimeter of tightly diced boards; armorial device of Trinity College Dublin stamped in the center of all boards; printed and manuscript plate on the front pastedowns of each volume identify the recipient as Eduardo Salmon in 1862. Bindings light rubbed; discreet mend to a small split at the top of the back joint of Volume III. A very nice example of a prize binding. While the subject of the volumes is typical for such prizes, that the selection was authored by Thomas Arnold, a significant reformer during his tenure as headmaster at the Rugby School, is notable.
