Before these books became part of this set, they were sitting on some lonely dusty book shelf being forgotten about, or in a box for years, decades, or a century, buried deep in the dusty corners of an antique store shelf. I have a passion for 19th century ornate hardcover books, specifically Henry Altemus published books, and EP Roe books. I've given them all a good temporary home (stored in sterlite containers in a climate controlled room, with moisture-absorbing silicone packs) until they go to their future permanent homes.

These book sets have been published in the late 1800s - early 1900s. I am not a book dealer, and I do not grade books on condition, so I'm describing them all as I see them. All of these books have implied wear from being over 100 years old. You should assume they all have brown or browning pages, and are all a little to a lot dusty (come on, they're old!). The pics show the tops of all books for inquiries about the spines, and pics of the title pages for inquiries about how brown the pages are. Please refer to the pics and descriptions if you have any questions outside of the basics. I will not break up the sets, please don't ask. But, I may list an exciting individual rare book once in a while! :)

I attempt to touch these books as little as possible. I'm not going to flip through them to count that every page is there, or inspect every flaw (please don't ask me to). There may or may not be missing pages that can be overlooked. Anything major will be noted below.

I will describe them left to right, bottom to top, as they are seen in the photos. They are all about 4.25-4.5 x 6.25":

Ten Nights in a Bar Room by T.S. Arthur: 1901, Cover art by Alphonse Mucha
I think the cover is the biggest draw to this book! There is an ownership stamp on the inside page.

Abbe Constantin by Ludovic Halevy: 1897
Writing on the inside page, water stain on top left corner. I wish I could wallpaper my house with the floral decor on this cover!

The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table by Oliver Wendell Holmes: c.1900
Publisher: Hurst & Company, NY
Dirty cover is coming off in places, gilt top edge, feels like it had water damage.
