8-Volume Complete Reference Set 1910 The Practical History of the World - Free Shipping within US
The condition is very good to excellent, with the smooth, cream-colored paper showing little evidence of yellowing, and no foxing. The color plates are protected with transparent sheets of glassine (similar to tracing paper), and there are numerous fold-out maps in delicately tinted colors. Each volume has a beautiful marble edging in blue-green, a hand-applied technique seen only in the highest-quality old books.
The set displays very well, and has been part of a collection of Arts and Crafts books that is now being dissolved from a family member's home in La Jolla, California (see other listings).
The price does include free shipping within the United States; international shipping would be prohibitively expensive with the recent increase in postal costs. However, if you are an international buyer determined to have the set, please feel free to contact me to see if we can work something out.
