ALISON, Sir Archibald

History of Europe

$600.00 AUD

from the Commencement of the French Revolution in M.DCC.LXXXIX. to the Restoration of the Bourbons in MDCCC.XV. Edinburgh and London : William Blackwood and Sons, 1853 – 1855. Ninth edition. Twelve volumes octavo (lacking the oblong quarto atlas), bound in uniform half calf, spine in compartments with raised bands and gilt ornamentation, contrasting morocco title labels ruled in gilt, a few scuffs, marbled edges, pagination various, engraved frontispieces.

A very good set of Alison’s monumental study of the French Revolution, written to quell any thoughts that such an event could take place in Great Britain. This set lacks the final atlas volume.
