Título: A History of Greece [12 Volumes, With ...
Editorial: John Murray
Condición del libro: Very Good
[Set09] London, 1846-1856. A complete first edition set of Grote's important work, complete in twelve volumes. Full polished calf bindings by Bickers and Son. Includes a manuscript letter from Grote regretfully declining an invitation to a luncheon. "Although as biased as Macaulay's History of England, and less scholarly than Mommsen's Roman History, Grote's History of Greece can be bracketed with these two works. Like them, it was received with universal acclimation. (It) shaped the European conception of the subject matter throughout the nineteenth century , and still merits respect as a monument of industrious Victorian scholarship." - Printing and the Mind of Man. A very good set with generally excellent contents, though there is some intermittent foxing especially at prelims and title pages. Nineteenth century bookplates on front pastedowns. Partial chip to label of spine on Vol. I, some chips to heads of spine of Vols. X and XII, some normal shelfwear, three white spots to top edge of pages of Vol. XI. Folding maps present at rear of Vols. I and II, with a marginal tear of about 2-3 inches to first map where it is attached, otherwise maps in excellent condition. Very good condition overall, quite sound and attractive. N° de ref. de la librería SKU1000052
