Scarce. Textually important : the first printing of Godolphin over Bulwer Lytton's name : with new 2pp Dedications and 1pp Note by Bulwer. *** Saunders & Otley issued a series of Bulwer titles, a spin-off from the Bentley Standard Novels, in stand-alone volumes : these eventually came to form the 1st Collected Edition of Bulwer Lytton. Sadleir describes the series as 'elegant' and 'carefully produced' and notes 'It is among my keener regrets that I have not been able absolutely to complete the series, but the books seem to be very uncommon'.
