About This Item

Handsome, fine-binding edition of "THE GEORGIAN ERA: Memoirs of the Most Eminent Persons, Who Have Flourished in Great Britain, from the Accession of George the First to the Demise of George the Fourth." The volumes are dated 1832, 1833 and 1834; Vizetelly, Branston and Co.; London. Complete in four volumes. Three-quarter leather bound with marbled covers, page edges and end papers. Each volume contains a frontispiece portrait. The volumes contain dozens of biographical sketches of prominent English men and women including Adam Smith, Isaac Newton, Jonathn Swift, Robert Burns, Thomas Paine, Captain James Cook, Daniel Defoe, Thomas Gainsborough, etc.

The contents are grouped into the following categories:

Condition:
Great covers with only some light shelf wear to the board edges; the spine label of vol IV has flaked off; some light chipping to a few other labels; bright gilt lettering and designs on the spines. All volumes are tightly bound with no cracks and no loose pages. The volumes nearly appear unread read on the insides - the pages are clean and white with no notable condition issues. Overall a terrific condition set.
