A Philosophical and Political History of the Settlements and Trade of the Europeans in the East and West Indies (7 of 8 volumes)
W. Strahan; and T. Cadell, London 1783 - An attractive part-set, 7 of 8 volumes only with most of the fold-out maps missing. Original tree-calf boards with 5 raised bands, 4 gilt-decorated panels, a title-plate and a volume-plate to each spine. 2 of the title-plates and 3 of the volume-plates are missing or mostly missing. General rubbing, wear & chipping to extremities, front board to volume 1 has been fairly neatly re-attached, text blocks tight and clean. The only map present is the folding world-map to the beginning of volume 1, with a tear and a few small tape repairs. Book Plate to front paste-downs of all volumes of Lord Walsingham. The missing volume, 5, is available from ABE as 'print on demand' and the correct edition is also online having been scanned into Google Books, but that is little consolation for this incomplete set. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
      [Bookseller: Armchair Books]
