A Pictorial History of the World's Great Nations, from the earliest dates to the present time (5 vols.)
by Yonge, Charlotte M.
New York: Selmar Hess, 1882. Hardcover. G+ (All vols. have average scuffs and wear to edges, with some aging and discoloration to binding edges; no large tears, though spines are variously faded; some instances of light foxing on occasion, often limited to full-page plate pages which are of a different paper quality; overall a nice set.). 5 vols. Brown textured and stamped leather, lavishly decorated on all binding sides, gilt letters on spines and front covers, 1184 pp., many BW illus. The five-volume edition of this history of the Western world. Covers chronological histories of Greece, Rome, Germany, France, England, and the United States. Terrific illustrations are peppered throughout the narrative -- providing the "pictorial" element of this history -- and a fair number of them are full-page engravings. A wonderful resource that makes for fun browsing for historians of all ilks. Please note that these are original printed volumes, and not ebooks, paperback reprints, or print-on-demand titles. As such, this set is scarce.
