Glasgow: James MacLehose and Sons, 1903. - LIMITED EDITION; 1000 copies printed. 12 volumes; 8vo. Sumptuously bound in contemporary full brown polished morocco, spine gilt-lettered in five compartments with raised bands, gilt panels, covers delicately segmented in gilt with floral corner tools, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Bookseller's ticket from Liverpool firm William Potter; the bindings are unsigned but may well be the work of local bindery Fazakerley. Contemporary ink ownership and some edge spotting, else a fine set in a beautiful contemporary full leather binding. Generously illustrated with maps, portraits, and other plates, many folding. A wonderful collection of early voyages and discoveries. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
