REFERENCE LIBRARY A Set of 12 books Finely Bound in Half Vellum Housed in a bespoke bookcase: J.C.Vicery Atlas of the World; Dictionary of Dates, English -German, French-English, English, Political Quotations, Daily Reckoner, Gazetteer, Etc.

By Various

London: J.C. Vickery, 1910. Other titles include English - French and German - English. All 12 volumes are housed in the original polished mahogany bookcase. No date but c. 1910 (foreword to Atlas dated 1910). All edges gilt and all endpapers blue marbled. The dictionary of Dates and the World Atlas are a larger format and housed in thier own trays beneath the other volumes. The Dictionary of dates is missing its ribbon to ease removal from the tray. The smaller volumes are flanked by the slightly larger translation dictionaries on a single shelf. The Atlas is complete with 72 coloured plates, mostly double paged. this J. C. Vickery vellum edition was probably designed to appeal to the "wedding present market". The bindings are all in very good condition with just a little general wear and rubbing, the blue cloth is very slightly marked and shows slight signs of handling, the vellum is very clean with bright gilt to the spines. Contents are good and tight. The display shelf is in very good condition with a little damage to the rear of the casing where a few additional pins have been added, the surface is nicely polished. A handsome set. Bibliographic note: J. C. Vickery now no longer trading, renowned for high quality objects in a similar vein to Liberty, Aspreys etc. Almost certainly this set was produced in different liveries to meet the specifications of the retailer. Several years ago we sold a similar, but different, reference library with Asprey title pages; however this is the finest set we have seen.. First Edition. Leather Bound. Fine/No Jacket. 12mo.
