About this Item

Volumes IX and X ONLY of what eventually became a 20 volume set. These two volumes were rebound into a single volume, circa mid 19th century. There is a dedication title page for "Vol. II" followed by the actual title page for Vol. IX with 352 pages, plus seven plates and six folding maps (lacking "Map of Germany" and "Burgomasier and Peasant of Nuremburg") and actual title page for Vol. X with 337 pages, plus six plates and four folding maps. Three pages of binding instructions for Volumes VI, VII, VIII, & IX follow. Gilt stamped lettering on red spine labels remains bright. Covers are scuffed and lightly worn. There is a partial and slight crack in the joint where the top cover is attached to the spine, and the hinge (internal) is also cracked. Volume remains tight, however, and text block is solid. Occasional light offsetting from maps and plates, though overall the contents are very bright, clean, and crisp. Bookseller Inventory # 033740

Store Description

With more than 25 years of experience buying and selling out-of-print, collectible, and rare books, maps, and ephemera, I am now doing business from my home at 60 Poplar Heights Rd.; Chanute, KS 66720; U.S.A. by appointment only. I offer a selection of more than 5000 books of all genre, as well as more than 1000 maps ranging from 15th century to early 20th. All inventory is hand selected and believed to be of significance for the collector, the reader, the historian or the general book lover. Historically, I have specialized in Kansas and regional history, but also maintain quality collections of Natural History, Theology, Americana, Railroad, Travel and Exploration, Medicine, Art, and Psychology, Neurology, and Psychiatry. Fine bindings, plate books, signed and inscribed items are also an important part of my collections. Smaller, though intriguing collections of other genre are also a part of my holdings. Appraisal, consultation, and collection development services are available. Please come and browse, talk books, and have a cup of coffee in a relaxed and book friendly environment. But for the convenience of both of us, please email or call first. Trade terms available and dealers are welcome.
