First edition, first printing. Publisher's original red cloth with titles in gilt to the spine, in dustwrapper. Illustrated throughout with numerous black and white plates. A fine copy, the binding square and tight, the contents clean and crisp throughout and without inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the near fine dustwrapper which has a very minor nick to the head of the spine, a tiny mark to the front pane and a touch of fading to the spine. Not price-clipped (£4.50 / 90s net to the front flap). An excellent copy.
The author's first book, which remains the standard work on Bolingbroke.
