For Edmund Parker, Edward Symon, Charles Hitch and John Pemberton. London. 1740.
Three volumes. Folio. (14 x 9 inches). Fourth edition. Portrait frontis by Geoffrey Kneller. Lacking the engraved memorial plate. Small worm damage to the outer margin, well away from any printed areas of the first 130 pages of volume two and first 100 pages of volume 3, previous owners neat name to the top margin of all three title pages otherwise a generally very good wide-margined set bound in contemporary full brown mottled calf boards but with new brown calf spines to match. The spines with six raised bands. Red title labels, compartments double ruled and lettered in gilt. Some rubbing to the board edges and corners but overall this is an attractive set of this classic work.
