The Ancient Life-History of the Earth, by H. Alleyne Nicholson.
Published 1896, New York by D. Appleton & Co.
407 pages. Text in English. Illustrated throughout.

Man and Glacial Period by G. Frederick Wright.
Published 1896, New York and D. Appleton and Company.
385 pages. Text in English. Illustrated throughout. Folding map at font.

Attractive antiquarian 1/2 leather bindings, smooth spines, gilt title lettering, marbled covers, top edges gilt.

Lot is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. While not rare titles, examples which survive looking as nice as these are in the minority.

Bindings gently age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly rubbed but still supple, set remains overall very attractive as 19th century objects.

Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, internally set 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. Book 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 these books as they survive. 

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.
