Product description

The Present State of Europe
Thomas Longman and Charles Hitch. London. 1750.
pp512. Written by John Campbell but his name is not to be found anywhere in the book.

The book explains the interests, connections, political and commercial views of its several powers, comprehending also a clear and concise history of each country, so far as is necessary to show the nature of their present constitutions. Originally begun in the museum, and now, at the desire of some considerable persons, revised and completed by the same author.

Sprinkled brown leather boards with gilt borders. Five raised bands to spine with more gilt highlights and red morocco title plate. The front hinge is cracked but still very much intact thanks to the spine binding.

Paste down bears the plate of The Right Honourable the Lord Viscount Lymington, (Hon. John Wallop) holder of the newly created title of Earl of Portsmouth, along with his crest of two rampant sable antelopes, lions etc. Inner bindings all very good with everything strong and firm. The pages are all clear with minimal tanning and no foxing.

This is a fine book that is over 260 years old.

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
