Second printing. Complete in three volumes (all second printing): Volume 1, The Eighteenth Century, Volume 2, The Romantic Period, Volume 3, The Victorian Period. Coloured frontispieces, monochrome illustrations. Condition: All the books are in very good condition, with just slight knocking/rubbing to boards, and some fading or faint discolouration at extremities; internally clean, sound and bright. Dust jackets (none price clipped) on the whole are good rather than very good: that of Volume 1 has a small area of some damage to the back, that of Volume 3 chipped and worn at top and bottom of the spine, and all have some rubbing to the edges and some age-darkening. No inscriptions.
