About This Item

New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1891. Complete eight-volume set, each volume bound in half-leather with marbled boards borded in gilt, banded spines with gilt titles and decoration, gilded head edges, marbled endpapers. Pages clean save for mild toning in the margins throughout, a small and faintly inky water stain at the lower bound corners of Volume III, mild rippling along the head edges in Volume V, and small water stains at the heel edges of three other volumes; all bindings remain square and tight, the leather somewhat darkened about the spine heel on five volumes and worn with occasional spots of exposure at the free corners, more gently rubbed at spine ends, with the occasional nick or scratch along the spine and occasional, mild flaking along front hinges, the marbled boards showing chipping at head and heel edges and surface scuffs on the back of Volume VIII and on the front of Volume VI, otherwise lovely. xix + 625, xvi + 699, xii + 591, xv + 606, xvi + 602, xviii + 611, xvi + 465, xv + 650, with index; the first two volumes cover the period of 1700-1760, and subsequent volumes assert a definitely British view of North American colonial rebellion, Irish shenanigans, church struggles, and the dawn of a new scientific era.. Half-Leather. Very Good.
