Very nice contemporary tree calf, a French binding with marbled endpapers, five raised bands and bright gilt titles and decoration on all the spines, page edges dyed light red. Some wear at the spine tops, and leather worn away at some corners. Image available on request. Although the title page claims this was produced in London, it almost certainly was printed and bound in France. Title pages printed in an attractive red and black print. Gilt lines on the board edges are also some worn away. The author was a famed philosopher and historian, and this work was regarded as definitive for more than half a Century. A pretty and well preserved 6 volume set. The translation into French by Abbe Provost.
