Book Description

Hardback: green cloth, gilt-lettered to spine, blind stamp of Columbia University insignia to upper board of all except Vol. III. Issued without dust-jackets, but 6 volumes retaining publisher’s protective tissue covers. Minor signs of shelf-wear in all volumes but not readership in most, a little scattered foxing to edges of a couple of volumes; overall, a very good set.
Dealer Notes
[Vols. I & II] During the First Thirteen Centuries of our Era; [Vols. III & IV] Fourteenth and Fifteenth Centuries; [Vols. V & VI] The Sixteenth Century; [Vol. VII & VIII] The Seventeenth Century.
Although dated as first published, all these volumes are numbered as later impressions (I & II seventh; III - VI sixth; VII & VIII fifth), and all have 10-digit ISBNs, and so were printed sometime between 1970 and 2007. For a work commenced by the author in 1902, this continuity in print is testament indeed to the durability of scholarship and application.
Author Thorndike, Lynn:
Date 1923; 1934; 1941; 1958.
