The Works of Lord Macaulay, Complete: Eight Volumes

£180.00

Product description

Eight volumes published 1879. All volumes in original brown calf with marbled boards having gilt outlining, and ridged spine with extensive gilt decoration. Titles are on the spines on plain brown panels, the panel stating 'Volume VIII' is missing. The front board of vol I is partly detached, the front hinges of the other volumes and all of the back hinges are cracked but the boards are still firmly attached. The spine covering of vol II is starting to come away along the top half of the back hinge. The spines have surface scuffing with chipping at the bases. There is a surface scratch on the front board of vol III and a white scratch-type mark on the back board of vol I. Marble edges all round although the marbling on the top edges has faded. Marbled endpapers edged with gilt tooling on the calf surround. Vol I has an inscription to the owner stating 'Eton Election 1892', the other volumes have a small owner name also stating 'Eton 1892'. The text is clean and unmarked and the binding is tight; the volumes appear to be unread. Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay, was a British historian and Whig politician. He wrote extensively as an essayist and reviewer; his books on British history have been hailed as literary masterpieces. This collection is edited by Lord Macaulay's sister, Lady Trevelyan.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
