London: Adam and Charles Black, 1902-1925. Ten volumes. First editions, except volume VI which is a third edition. 4to. Uniformly bound in later dark green quarter morocco over cream linen boards, spines with raised bands, gilt lettered to three panels and decorated to the others. Profusely illustrated throughout. A very good set. One of the great historical and topographical descriptions of London. Besant was commissioned to compile the survey in the 1890s, under-supported by the publishers who "relied too much on Besant's talents and money - both already hopelessly over-stretched". The set was published posthumously between 1902 and 1912. Item #24844

Price: £600.00
