ISBN: 1862078041

Two Volumes Thick 8vo., 828pp; 696pp. . Beautiful First Edition. Bound in black paper-covered boards with titles in gilt on spines. Square, tight and clean throughout with little or no wear save very gentle bumping to the heels. Sharp unclipped, though unpriced, dust-jackets, (£30 on the rear panel of each volume), are fresh and bright with no chipping or tears. Volume I has a shallow crease on the spine and volume II has a dog-ear on the top front top flap. From the library of Tom Fox, (with his unobtrusive blind-stamp on the title page of each volume), the noted New Jersey Irish-Ameican author, collector and professor of Irish history and literature, Fox was called by Nicholas Basbanes, ",,, a kindred spirit...assembler of an uncommonly distinctive collection of Irish history and literature". A very pretty collectable set. Please note: International and Priority orders may require additional postage.
