From the description of a secondhand book recently offered on sale through abebooks.com:
The Poetical Works of Sir Walter Scott,
Scott, Sir Walter
Oxford University Press, 1890, Hard Cover, , 758 pages. Book has a golden guilt trim around the edges with "Scott" guilt on front and "Scott's Poetical Works" on the spine. There is wear to top and bottom of the spine and around the edges typical of a book this old.
