First edition, the original 30 parts in 18, limited to 150 sets printed on Whatman hand-made paper, each volume signed by Wright, 4to, original blue printed wrappers; some spines chipped, some edges curled and a few other minor defects, but generally a very good, fresh-looking and largely unopened set, contained in five new cloth folding boxes for preservation. With the English Dialect Grammar, supplement and bibliography, as issued. Thirty-three years in the making (ten years alone just to publish it), the EED is one of the greatest lexicographical works ever undertaken by a single editor, with over 100, 000 words and a half million quotations and references--a storehouse of folklore, a mine of learning for philologists. In an original prospectus for the work it was announced that 250 sets would be so printed, but a quick study of the subscriber list shows that at the onset of publication only fifty-three of these large paper sets were subscribed for. Consequently, it must have been deemed advisable, given the severe financial limitations Wright and his staff faced, to reduce the issue to 150.
