Synthetic Philosophy of Herbert Spencer [with] Selected Works of Herbert Spencer [and with] An Autobiography (18 Volumes Uniformly Bound, Westminster/Authorized Edition)
New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1904. New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1904. Hardcover. Very good. Westminster edition, a limited edition of 1000 numbered sets, this being #729. Also noted on the copyright pages as the Authorized Edition. Only the two Autobiography volumes bear a date on the title page, but this (1904) likely is, or is close to, the publication date for the entire set. Eighteen volumes uniformly bound in dark green cloth, with top edges gilt, gilt lettering on spines, and facsimile signature stamped in gilt on upper boards. All volumes but one are internally fine: bindings tight and square, no markings or foxing, some unopened pages. Unfortunately, the boards have sustained varying degrees of insect damage, and--on two volumes only (Education; Facts and Comments)--water damage. Please see accompanying photographs for examples. The Education volume has rippled pages (this is the single volume not fine internally). The spines have relatively little damage, and the set still looks quite attractive on the shelf. Titles in the Synthetic Philosophy series include: First Principles; The Principles of Ethics (2 vols); The Principles of Psychology (3 vols); The Principles of Sociology (5 Vols); The Principles of Biology (2 Vols); Titles in the Selected Works series include:Facts and Comments; Social Statics, Abridged and Revised, together with The Man Versus the State; and Education, Intellectual, Moral, and Physical. It probably goes without saying, but shipping charges will be more than standard for this heavy set. Please email for a shipping quote.
