by Matthew Henry

Condition: See description

Quite Scarce: Full-leather bound with black spine lables over polished tan calf. Six hardcover books in very good condition. An ex-library set from the Franconia Free Library from the town in northern NH of the same name. This is listed in the library catalog published 1907 (store copy reference), and may have been part of the original 339 books moved from their location at 'Burt's Store' to the Post Office in 1892 as they contain the original library bookplate, not the updated one with the Old Man visage which began when all of the books were moved to the permanent library building (Abbie Greenleaf Library) in 1913, which is still being used today. Very good condition with no other ownership markings. 1833 edition complete in six volumes. States "First American Edition" on the title page. .
