The Comprehensive History of England Civil and Military Religious Intellectual and Social (4 Vols.)

£75.00

Product description

A 4 volume set published by Blackie and Son dated 1862. Quarter bound in dark blue leather and heavy textured boards in a matching colour. All volumes show signs of wear, especially the exposed the leather corners and edges of the spines. The boards are relatively undamaged, being constructed of much stronger material, although they are dusty. Some corners are slightly bumped.

The hinges and bindings are in immaculate condition giving the impression that most of the books have not been opened. Internally the text blocks are in excellent condition, the only damage being the general deterioration consistent with a book of this age. There is quite a bit of foxing to the early and later pages in each volume and randomly throughout, however much of the books are clear.

The page ends are marbled, the heads being a little discoloured and dusty. The spine decorated with gilt pattern, it is banded with the book details within two burgundy coloured bands.

Each volume has an inscription in copperplate writing dated 1864 on the ffe.

This set of books weighs in at about 7kg so it will be sent by courier at additional charge. If you purchase these items pleas provide a telephone number for the courier.
