Daniel Defoe 4 Volumes
Nice 1778 A Tour Through the Island of Great Britain by Daniel Defoe 4 Volumes
1778. This is a nice, original four-volume 8th edition of Daniel Defoe's A Tour Through the Island of Great Britain, printed for Strahan, Rivington, Buckland et al. (see photo) in 1778, with edits by Samuel Richardson. The civil commotions of the seventeenth century and the great changes, political and economic, of the eventful years after Watts steam engine and the French and American Revolutions lies a tract of time, well known to students of politics and literature, but for the economic historian still largely uncharted and unexplored. Each volume measures 7" x 4.5" and contains 379, 404, 417 and 379 pages respectively. Contains two maps. Ex-Library. All volumes have organizational pencil marks on front end page, Vol 4 has St George Library stamp. There is some mild rubbing wear to edges of covers. Interior pages good, text sharp and clean. These were most likely rebound at some point- nice leather spines and marbled boards. Please review photos and Email with any question. A great addition to any collection!
