History of England from the fall of Wolsey to the death of Elizabeth.
London: John W. Parker and Son, 1858-1870. 12 volumes, 8.5 inches tall. The scarcer, taller crown octavo edition in a splendid full 'Oxford' or 'Divinity' calf with gilt raised bands, twin labels, a small gilt floral device and blind tooling. Pink edges. Armorial bookplate. Some speckling to the calf but with no weak joints or loss. A fine set of this great history of 16th century England up to the Defeat of the Spanish Armada.
