14 volumes plus atlas (complete). All fully bound in leather with gilt decoration - to fascias, spines and edges - and titling. All have marbled papertrims and frontis and end papers. This is a FABULOUS set of this popular, loquacious history of Europe (with the first major account of the French Revolution). It is smart, handsome, gentlemanly and very clubbable. Some of the books have wear from shelving and are scuffed but this only adds a genial dignity and character. All have binder labels (T. Sowler, Manchester - the very model of a Victorian businessman) on the front pastedowns. Spines have five ridges and six panels. The Atlas (108 pages - published 1850) contains maps of countries and towns and plans of 'battles and sieges &c.' The covers are worn and scuffed. Within there are some small storage marks about. The pages are clean, startlingly bright and clear, finely detailed and the colours for various regiments fresh. Volume 1 (633 pgs; 1849): wear to edges and spine, but dignified and secure. The contents are tight and clean. Covers 1774-1789. Vol 2 (693 pgs; 1849). In very good, handsome condition. Light wear, bright gilt. Inside, the contents are clean and fresh. There is a silk bookmark. 1789 - 1793. Vol 3 (635 pgs; 1749). The stamped decoration (as with all other volumes) is neat and unworn. The spine has some wear but is benign and kindly. The pages are clean and comfortable. Covers 1795. Vol. 4 (654 pages; 1849). A lovely atmospheric copy. At last the story moves on beyond France. The pages are fresh. 1795-1799. Vol V (658 pgs). Neat, contented, bright. 1799 -1801. Vol 6 (670 pgs). Nelson, Pitt, Napoleon! The odd storage stain. Otherwise very clean. 1801-05. Vol 7 (690 pgs). Some age related marks. Tidy and handsome.

The War in Egypt and the Soudan - An Episode in the History of the British Empire being a descriptive account of the scenes and events of that great drama, and sketches of the principal actors in it., Archer, Thomas
7 Archer, Thomas The War in Egypt and the Soudan - An Episode in the History of the British Empire being a descriptive account of the scenes and events of that great drama, and sketches of the principal actors in it.
Blackie and Son, Glasgow 1887 1st Edition Hardcover Poor No Jacket Hardcover 
The above book number refers to the full four volume set of the history of the War in Egypt and Sudan. There is no marked publication date but the preface is dated 1887. These are former library (Military/ Militere Museum Library/ Biblioteek) and there are stamps throughout all four volumes to verify this. The books have been sadly stored. Their general condition is poor. All four volumes have much wear, marking and storage damage and light fading. All four are light worn at the right hand quarters of their front covers. This also affects the back cover left edge. There is much wear to all extremities, corners, the head and feet of all spines and their bindings. All have fragile front and end papers (the frontispage of Volume four is loose - it is included). All have a previous owner inscription (volume four directs the reader to the mention of a relation of the owner). The paper trim edges are tarnished. Annotations are scatter-gunned through the volumes. Despite their general fragility and disrepair, the generalised foxing and erratic, noisy binding, all pages are present and complete. This passionate, thorough, thrilling history is told on clear, stoic, brave, sound pages. They may be read with confidence and comfort. The illustration plates are thrilling and clear. Age and robustness are common friends throughout. fk
