About this Item

Book. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. Continuous run of Knight's Companion to the Almanac from 1828 to 1858, with one index volume as well covering up to 1843. Chock-a-block with interesting information on virtually all aspects of economic, business and social affairs in Britain during reign of William IV up until the mid-Victorian era. While rich in statistical and demographic information, these volumes are much, much more, with articles that describe and analyze with rigor the issues and developments of the day. Many plates and illustrations of significant architectural and engineering projects scattered throughout. Thus this can serve as both an invaluable primary source reference for the period as well as an entertaining resource for the more casual student of English history. All volumes have been professionally recased and bound with handsome light brown calf spines, preserving Victorian marbled boards and calf spine tips. All volumes are tight and clean inside. Modern marbled endpapers. Other than wear to old calf corners, this would be a fine set. Bookseller Inventory # 001171

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
