About this Item

The first 2 volumes have the period, full brown leather covers detached. The leather on the covers is worn and edge chipped with the paper on the corners showing through. Volume 1 was printed in 1708 - xlii, 488 pages. There is a little pencilled marginalia with some library stamps in the margins of the text pages and library stamps on the Title Page. The period leather spine is chipped for 1/2" on each end but has a still bright and clear Title label in red with a clear volume number. There is a white library call number on the spine. Volume 2 was printed in 1711 - xx, 680 pages and a 12 page Index. This volume is in the same condition as Volume 1. Volume 3 was printed in 1722 - xiv, 526 pages. The boards are still attached but the hinges are cracking. It has the same points as the other 2 volumes. The main body of the text in each volume is well bound with generally clean and still crisp pages. Some foxing. $10.00 for postage in the U.S. and $45.00 postage to most other countries.
