The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire [ 12 Volumes. Fine Bindings ]

By GIbbon Edward

London: Lackington Hughes Harding Mavor and Jones, 1820. Complete set, in 12 volumes. Books measure 22x14cm. Circa 5,000 pages, folding map. Bound in full red morocco, raised bands, ornate gilt tooling within compartments, gilt and blind stamped dentelles, full gilt edges, coloured endpapers. Calf light rubbed, some light minor wear, a few hinge joints very slightly cracked. All bindings in very good clean condition. Gilt tooling and dentells on volumes 2 & 8 are very slightly different. My guess is that, in the 1850s these volumes were replaced and the binder has used a slightly different, but very closely matched gilt tool. Internally, occasional light spotting, foxing to map. Pages in good clean condition throughout. A nice clean set, in very attractive period bindings. . A New Edition. Full Calf. Very Good Plus. 8vo.
