Offering an outstanding estate discovery. A set of 8 bound leather books of The History of England by Lord Macaulay. Decorated leather spines, leather corners, full marbelized edges on all 3 sides, and an engraving print of Lord Macaulay inside the first book with tissue, and marbelized end papers.

Full set of The History of England. The last date of publication mentioned is 1872. Books have tight spines, leather spines and corners, & are all matching. Published by Hurd & Houghton, Cambridge, Riverside Press.

The leather pieces are lightly scuffed, the edges and corners of the covers are worn and there is very pale minor foxing on one tissue insert in book 1 and also on some of the title pages. Overall though the set is very strong. Smells fresh. Set weighs 11.2 pounds.

Measures 7 1/2 inches x 5 inches x 1 3/8 inches.

We are currently offering the book collection from the family library. The books have been in storage for over 100 years. A very rare, special offering of books.
