About this Item

These 6 volumes are tightly bound in 3/4 brown leather, with brown cloth boards. The covers are well attached, but 3 of the spines have mostly light chipping to the top edge. Volumes 3 and 4 are missing the red title labels, with vol. 3 lacking a small piece of leather on the spine. All 6 volumes of this Revised Edition were printed in 1856, with the original copyright dates being from 1848 to 1851. Vol. 1 has 572 pages, with a light waterstain to the back cover resulting in a slight bend. Vol. 2 has 579 pages. Vol. 3 has 592 pages. Vol. 4 has 704 pages. Vol. 5 has 686 pages. Vol. 6 has 739 pages. The pages are all generally very clean, are still crisp, and are tightly bound, but the pages are foxed, with the foxing being heavy in places. There are no ownership inscriptions or bookplates. Each book has the original bookseller's label of H. H. Bancroft on the upper left corner of the front inner cover. It is a green paper label measuring 1-1/4 inches high by 1 inch wide. The labels read: "H. H. Bancroft & Co. / Booksellers / Publishers & Stationers / Montgomery Street / San Francisco". This part of Bancroft's life preceded his giving up the book business to work on his histories. Bookseller Inventory # 14605
