Chambers's Papers for the People - Volume III and V Bound Together

By Chambers, William and Robert (ed.)

Edinburgh: Chambers, 1850. Volumes 3 and 5 bound together, in old maroon cloth binding of mid-19th Century Dublin parochial school library, some foxing and soiling throughout, but text body generally quite sound and good. The binding is tight, though plain, with only the library book number 41 in gilt on the spine. These volumes probably originally issued in a flimsy binding, and rebound after being donated to the library. . Each volume consists of eight 'papers' on a variety of interesting topics, including some fiction. Topics covered here include Arctic exploration, social utopias, Carthage, recent discoveries in astronomy, Secret societies of the Middle Ages, Rajah Brooke and Borneo, Antarctic explorations, Jewish life in Central Europe, William Wordsworth.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
