Published in 1901, this nine-volume complete set is titled Ridpath's History of the World: Being an Account of the Principal Events in the Career of the Human Race from the Beginning of Civilization to the Present Time. In nice oversize brown 3/4 leather bindings with burgundy cloth boards, this is a very substantial set of history books. Richly illustrated throughout with steel engravings. Some wear to the spines and edges, but in good to very good condition overall. A favorite of interior designers and set designers, Juniper Books turns the bookshelf into a work of art. From beautifully bound volumes by Dickens and Austen to cookbooks with clever custom covers, they have the classics covered in style. This collection features a wide variety of genres, so you’re sure to find a thoughtful gift for your favorite bibliophile.
