Green cloth, paper spine labels, top edges gilt. We don't know how many volumes the complete set should have; we do know that we lack Volume II of de Toqueville and Volume II of Green. All volumes illustrated with photogravures, color reproductions of photographs and illuminated miniatures. All but two volumes are waterstained, ranging from just a small stain to large ones, and a couple have some waterstaining to some pages as well. Very tight and sound. Titles include: Manzini's The Betrothed; Essays on Astronomy by various authors; White's Natural History of Selbourne; Discourses of Epectitus;/Meditations of Aurelius; Assyrian & Babylonian Literature; Ruskin's Seven Lamps of Architecture/Architecture and Painting; Hallam's View of the State of Europe During the Middle Ages; Green's Short History of the English People (Volume I only); Livius's Roman History; Orations of Demosthenes; Heine's Picture of Travel; Froude's Julius Caesar; Cervantes' Don Quixote; de Tocqueville's Demoncracy in America (Volume I only); Dialogues of Plato (Jowett); de Montesquieus's The Spirit of the Law (two volumes); Cellini's Memoirs; Dana's Two Years Before the Mast; and a volume containing Nicolette and Aucassin, Paul and Virginia, Undine and Sintram.
