The Ancient History of the Egyptians, Carthaginians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Medes and Persians, Macedonians and Grecians by Charles Rollin
This is the complete set of Charles Rollin's work on Ancient History published in four volumes, in 1845 by Nafis & Cornish, New York. The books were translated from the French, and these volumes were from the latest London edition. The volumes are illustrated with maps of ancient geography, and engravings adapted to the work.
The books are bound in brown calf leather. The spines have two text blocks in black using gold lettering. The leather is worn on the edges, but the bindings, although acceptable, need a bit of attention. The text of each volume is complete, and there are pull out maps in each volume. The text block edges are marbelized. There is foxing on the end pages, and the maps. The rest of the texts are clean and free of rips or marks. The books measure 7 7/8 inches x 5 1/8 inches. The volumes range from 464 - 492 pages.
Charles Rollin (1661 - 1741) was a French historian and educator. I've included the complete contents of the four volumes by naming the title of each of the XXIII Books, which are spread across the four volumes.
