About this Item

4 volumes. A very early edition of Goldsmith's history, corrected, and only the second edition to include Coote's continuation up to 1802. Tall 8vos, in handsome contemporary mottled calf, the boards with gilt chain framework, the spines with elegant central gilt devices in compartments between extensively decorated flat bands, two compartments with contrasting red and black morocco labels gilt lettered and tooled, board edges hatched in blind, page edges speckled. viii, 422; 447; 431; 567 pp. A beautiful, gentlemanly and pristine set, the text appearing essentially as mint, very fresh and crisp, the bindings strong and sturdy and handsome. A VERY HANDSOME SET IN FULL CONTEMPORARY STATE OF GOLDSMITH'S IMPORTANT POLITICAL HISTORY OF ENGLAND. Though best remembered now for his novels, Goldsmith's "History" was a staple of 19th century upper education, thus is rarely found in such fine condition. It is recognized for its balanced and unbiased delivery, its largest criticisms were for being too concise. Goldsmith's own work begins with the pre-Roman Britons and ends with George II. Coote's very excellent continuation provides us with an entire volume on the age of George III, whose Reign was longer than any other British monarch before him. Events in this extraordinary period of time included the Seven Years War, the American Revolution, the French Revolution and the early Napoleonic years. Bookseller Inventory # 27463
