MAGNIFICENT 18TH CENTURY FULL MOTTLED CALF

Biographia Britannica: or, The Lives of the Most Eminent Persons who have Flourished in Great Britain and Ireland.....

London: Innys, Meadows et al., 1747. 7 volume set, 14 1/2 inches tall. Magnificent full mottled calf folios with raised bands, splendid twin labels and superb gilt tooling to the panels. Slight variation to the last 2 volumes. With the armorial bookplate of Vere Londonderry. From the library of Charles William Vane (formerly Stewart), third Marquess of Londonderry. Vane served with distinction throughout the Peninsula War. His dashing and dandified portrait by Sir Thomas Lawrence is at the National Portrait Gallery. He amassed magnificent libraries in his various Country Houses. There is considerable splitting to some boards and some loss to head and tail caps, there is also a small loss in the top panel of the final volume, but all the volumes are solid, the set is complete, internally spotless and it looks terrific on the shelf.
