History of Civilization in England 3 volumes

£19.99

Product description

These three volumes are the edition of the World Classics which were issued in 1903 and 1904. They constitute the apogee of Buckle's historical work and are the result of seventeen years of disciplined work. It was not for nothing that he had the title of the Father of Scientific history.

Grant Richard hardback. All three volumes are in leather with a gilt decoration on the front and spine, with gilt lettering to the spine. The boards show considerable edge and corner wear. The upper edge of the text block is in gilt.. There is some foxing and tanning of the end pages. Voloume 1 has 413 pages. Volume 2 473 and volume 3 512. The place markers of vols 1 and 2 are present but have come adrift from their anchoring; vol 3 has no place marker. Nor is this the least of the defect of the third volume because the front hinge is totally severed and held tenuously in place by the end papers.

A nice little set badly compromised by that binding problem with volume 3.
