History of Civilization in England, in Two Volumes. From the Second London Edition, to which is added an Alphabetical Index.
by Buckle, Henry Thomas
xxx, 677; xxx, 476 pp. 8vo. Half-leather, gilt titles & decorations on spine, marbled boards, edges, and endpapers. Though this work remained incomplete at the author's death, it is still considered an important contribution to history, and as a result Buckle is sometimes called the Father of Scientific History. From the Encyclopedia Britannica's entry on the work:"Buckle's fame rests mainly on his History of Civilization in England. It is a gigantic unfinished introduction, of which the plan was, first to state the general principles of the author's method and the general laws that govern the course of human progress—and secondly, to exemplify these principles and laws through the histories of certain nations characterized by prominent and peculiar features—Spain and Scotland, the United States and Germany. The completed work was to have extended to 14 volumes." Boards a bit rubbed, ink name stamp on verso of each front endpaper. New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1887. Collectible; Very Good/No Jacket.
