The Chronologist of the Present War;

£95.00

Product description

Subtitled "or General Historical and Political Register containing A faithful series of the events which have occurred in Europe etc from the commencement of the French Revolution to the end of the year 1796"

Being over 300 years old this book has lasted very well. The title pages are very discoloured but the remaining pages, whilst tanned, are completely legible with a few margin notes and what could be ink marks. The cover is well worn. This is a sewn binding which has failed so that the cover is almost detached but the remaining pages remain joined. The page edges are soiled and bent at the corners. The last page of the index is missing the lower half. However, this is an original book which is rare and collectable.
