About This Item

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, eleventh edition, 1910. Full Flexible Leather with Vertical Case. Very Good +. Large 4to, complete with 29 volumes, 8.75 x 11.75, about 1000 pages each. The ultimate encyclopedic reference for the historian (or any other scholar who wishes to discover the \"state of knowledge\" in his or her specialty before 1910). When we found that precious edition at a yard sale in Minnesota (more than 40 years ago, when we were a lowly graduate student), we almost wet our pants. Of course we bought it, even though it cost us nearly two months\' rent, and we\'ve been hauling it around with us ever since. Now it is time to pass it on to someone who will love as much as we [the Royal] we did! A Collectors\' item. The interiors of all volumes are about as good as it gets. Original burgundy flexible leather covers are very good. They were very good when I bought them more than forty years ago, and they have received several applications of preservative oils since then. Though a bit fragile, they will last many more decades with care and careful handling. The 29 volumes sit horizontally in a vertical case (of mahogany we think), which has but minor, easily remedied scuffing. The case is included, obviously. Also included, a \"reader\'s guide\" which is bound in tan buckram. This is obviously a very heavy product that is very expensive to ship, and so shipping is negotiable (depending on buyer\'s location and desire for care, security, etc.). The product is undoubtedly too large to entrust to the US Postal Service.
