The History of England.
London: Longman et al., 1830-1839. 9 volume set, 6 1/2 inches tall. Exquisite little set with gilt raised bands, extra gilt panels and triple labels. Note the spectacular volume label. The tree calf boards are framed within an ornate floral gilt roll. Each title page has an engraved vignette. From the library of Edward Nicholas Hurt, most of whose books were of this highest quality. The first 3 volumes are by Sir James Mackintosh, volumes 4 to 9 are by Wallace and evidently were bound 9 years later resulting in a slight variation of tooling. A tenth volume was printed some years later. A beautiful set.
