    The Second Edition, Revised

    A Complete History of England: With the Lives of All the Kings and Queens Thereof; From the Earliest Account of Time to the Death of His Late Majesty the King William II - In Three Volumes. London: Printed for R. Bonwicke, et. al., 1719.

    Second edition, corrected and with amendments and additions. Three folio volumes, complete. 640 plus index; 792 plus index; 855 pages plus index. Title pages lettered in red and black. Full-page engravings throughout.

    Full polished calf with rectangular leather insets to all boards, and with blind-tooled rules, borders, and decorations. Gilt spines with six raised bands and red morocco title label. Leather quite rubbed and worn. Bindings sturdy, but all volumes have cracked and splitting joints; front hinges of Volumes II and III starting. Minor toning to pages. "Levenside" labels mounted to all front pastedowns. Overall, an imposing set in very good condition.

    The first two volumes were compiled by John Hughes (1677-1720) with contributions from several authors, including John Milton and Francis Bacon. Volume III was written (anonymously) by White Kennet, Bishop of Peterborough (1660-1728).
