First editions of the first four volumes (Chuo 47, 1-4), with the final two volumes in second edition (not in Chuo). ‘Hume published his History in reverse chronological order, beginning with the Stuart monarchs (1754, 1757), moving to the House of Tudor (1759), and ending with the earlier periods (1762). The retrograde appearance of the volumes itself became a matter of discussion for several critics. Once finished, the volumes were republished as complete sets in the proper chronological order. Hume intended to continue his History past the period of the Restoration, but his plans were never fulfilled. He initially hesitated for fear that the “prejudices” against his former volumes had not yet subsided (Hume to Andrew Miller, January 14, 1765)’ (James Fieser, Early Responses to Hume’s History of England, Thoemmes Press 2003, xiv). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 6 volumes, 4to, viii, 424, [92 index]; viii, 446, [1]; viii, 402; iv, 403-739, [1]; viii, 464; [ii], v, 457 pp., uniform contemporary half calf with contrasting labels (numbered in chronological order rather than order of publication), rubbed and scuffed, spine ends and corners worn, first volume with lower compartment of backstrip missing, all volumes with 'Ex Libris Alexander G.A.
