A set of 10 antique books from the Everyman's Library collection edited by Ernest Rhys circa 1909. The set includes:
- The Poems of John Keats
- Don Quixote de la Mancha Volume I by Miguel de Cervantes
- Essays 1st & 2nd Series by Ralph Waldo Emerson
- Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
- David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
- Socratic Discourses by Plato and Xenophon
- Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
- Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson
- Memoirs of Benvenuto Cellini
- The Poems of Alfred Tennyson

Each book features an intricate gold design on a dark red cover. The front covers each read, "Everyman, I will go with thee and be thy guide, In thy most need to go by thy side."

The books are very, very worn. The covers have worn down edges, and some have rips or moisture damage. The binding of most of the books has been cracked. The pages are in better shape, with most just having some discoloration from age.

In this condition, the books would best serve as a shabby décor set or the pages could be salvaged and repurposed as crafting supplies.

The books each measure about 7" by 4.5" by 1". They range from about 200 pages to over 800 pages long.

Please note: to give you the lowest possible shipping cost, this listing ships by USPS Media Mail. See my shop policies page for full information on payment, shipping, taxes, etc.
