Welcome back to Brian's office, where we have even more interesting historical things to share with you! There was so much excellent material that we had a hard time choosing, so we ended up making two videos. Here's part two of this week's highlights roundup.
We know that many of you (like us) appreciate a fine antiquarian leather set, and this week we've got some truly magnificent examples, including a rare complete 10 volume set of New Hampshire Historical Society Collections (issued over a period of 70 years!), a beautiful and complete 13 volume set of Trollope's Chronicles of Barchester, and a lovely 2 volume Grolier's illustrated set focusing on the royal courts of Sweden & Denmark.
As always, the items in the video can be found by searching their item numbers (listed below) on our website, BrianDiMambro.com. That's it from us for this week; check back in with us soon for more lovely and fascinating books! Once the Holiday period is over and the New Year begins, we plan to re-start our regular schedule of more in-depth looks at individual items.
