Monarchs Retired from Business - 2 volume set

£50.00

Product description

Monarchs Retired from Business, in 2 volumes, by Dr. John Doran. Published by Richard Bentley, New Burlington Street, Publisher in Ordinary to Her Majesty, 1857. Bound by Edmonds and Remnants, London. Printed by John Edward Taylor, Little Queen Street, Lincoln's Inn Fields.

The author looks at the past Royalty of Britain, along with 16 other European countries. Retired is the polite term for deposed or dethroned monarchs throughout history. Volume I: European Monarchs including Britain, France, Corsica, Holland, The German Empire, Bohemia, Hungary, Bavaria and Poland. Volume II: Rome, The Eastern Empire, Russia, Sardinia, Scandinavia, Spain, Portugal and Turkey. A fascinating historical insight for anyone studying or interested in Europe's monarchies and their vast histories.

Hardback 2nd/reprint editions, 1857 (same year as first edition). Overall very good condition, considering over 150 years of ageing. Original blue blind stamped cloth with gilt spine lettering and original frontispiece. Some marks/stains on the cover of volume 1, as well as general wear to the corners. Spine is fairly strong. No annotations - only writing is the name of a previous owner on the inside cover page. Very little foxing/browning throughout compared with what would be expected of books of this age.
