    More Information:

    Five large octavo volumes. xxxvi, 573, 574-579; viii, 633; viii, 572; viii, 684; viii, 841, 842-843, [844, list of engravings], [1, publisher's ads]. Illustrated with ten fold-out maps and two illustrated folding frontispieces, a Washington portrait frontispiece, and a vignette. Bound without most ads, else complete. Bound in contemporary full diced russia, boards double-ruled in gilt, and decoratively ruled in blind. All volumes rebacked to style in later brown calf, spines tooled and ruled in gilt in compartments, five raised bands, blue and green gilt morocco lettering labels. Spines sunned and rubbing, some wear to boards, some offsetting to endleaves, inkstamps and signatures to title-pages (they has been an attempt to wash these out, causing two title-pages to be torn and subsequently repaired), text somewhat toned and occasionally foxed, some maps closely trimmed or with short tears. Otherwise, a very good set.
