A Narrative of the Voyages Round the World Performed by Captain James Cook with an Account of His Life During the Previous and Intervening Period, by A. Kippis.
Published 1828, Boston by N.H. Whitaker.
2 volumes. 205, 209 pages. Text in English. Nineteen (of 20?) wood engraved plates throughout. Frontis to vol. 2 is a copper engraved plate showing the death of Capt. Cook., appears to lack the frontis to vol. 1.

Scarce early American set in any condition, found here in nice period bindings.

Attractive antiquarian full leather bindings, smooth spines, gilt bands, gilt title lettering on contrasting red leather labels.

Set is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. 

Bindings gently age worn but still appealing, first volume opens to half-title, leather and joints slightly rubbed but still supple, set remains overall very attractive as an object.

Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, internally book remains mostly clean, tight and sound. A set which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new.

Still attractive on the shelf. Set displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive. 

Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this set as it survives. 

We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take clear photos and try to describe it clearly.
