The History of Great Britain. Comprising: 'From the Revolution to the Accession of the House of Hanover'; 'Memoirs of the Kings of great Britain of the House of Brunswic-Lunenburg'; 'Memoirs of the Reign of George III'.
London: Robinson, 1796-1801: 1796. 10 volume set, 8.5 inches tall. A very handsome set of this scarce title in 18th century tree calf with gilt bands, twin labels and yellow edges. The last two volumes are matching but with variations to the colour and tooling. Two more volumes were published at a later date. William Belsham was a radical historian and apologist for the American Revolution. From the library of the Earls of Lovelace, with ink-stamps of Ashley Combe on the paste down endpapers and Ben Damph Forest to the free endpaper. A remarkable set.
