An Essay on the Origin and Prospects of Man (1st edition, 3 volumes, 1831, possibly a presentation copy to William Beresford)
London: John Murray 1831 - 3 volumes, 8vo. Original olive green cloth covers, faded and with some mild staining. The spines are worn with chipped but labels all present. Boards of volume one detached, which is reflected in the price. Internally clean and crisp. A slightly battered looking but otherwise good set of this rare work. With small neat owner's inscription on the title pages and a note on the front free endpaper that reads 'From the Author'. This is just about possible, since Hope died in February 1831. The set is NOT signed by Hope, but may well have been given by him to its first owner. The inscription says that the books are from Lord Beresford's library at Badgebury Park. Lord Beresford married his first cousin the Honourable Louisa, widow of Thomas Hope and daughter of William Beresford, 1st Baron Decies and Elizabeth Fitzgibbon, in 1832, making it more than likely that this is indeed a presentation copy.
