London: Barrington, 1812.

8 volumes. Small 4tos, original blue paper marbled boards with paper spine labels (bindings are well-rubbed and with some chipping at ends and cracking at outer joints). All volumes have copper engraved frontispiece portraits with offsetting on each title page. The text blocks are near fine all with uncut edges. London: C. J. Barrington, 1812-1817. Overall a very good sound set.
