This 19-volume, leather-bound collection of the works of Charles Lever was published in London by Chapman and Hall in 1860. These are by and large the first editions of these titles in bound form, after they were released as serial publications. The books have three-quarter red leather bindings with marbled paper boards, gilded page edges, and illustration by Phiz. The set consists of Harry Lorrequer, Knight of Gwynne (two volumes), Charles O'Malley (two volumes), Jack Hinton, The O'Donoghue, Tom Burke (two volumes), The Daltons (two volumes), The Martins of Ro'martin (two volumes), Dodd Family Abroad (two volumes), Davenport Dunn (two volumes), and Roland Cashel (two volumes). The set is in very good condition on average with only light wear at edges. There is some moisture damage on the bottom of the first pages of Knight of Gwynee and Tom Burke, a heavy moisture stain on the first volume of Dodd Family Abroad and the first volume of Roland Cashel, and a minor moisture stain on the second volume of Roland Cashel; the moisture damage is not visible on the bindings except for a few dark marks that could be mistaken for darkening of the leather. The illustrations are in bright clean condition, and all frontispieces and illustrations present.
