The Times History of The War.
Published 1916-17, London by "The Times". Volumes 7-11 (of 12?).
5 volumes, each c. 500 pages. Text in English. Profusely illustrated throughout. 

Because the war is told in chronological fashion, despite being odd volumes from a larger set, each volume and chapter is complete unto itself. So these volumes cover the war in detail from the first German air raids on London (Feb. 1916- May 15, 1917.

Attractive antiquarian 1/2 leather binding, raised bands, gilt title lettering, cloth covers. Profusely illustrated, endless images, numerous color maps (some double page).

Set is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. A monumental heavy set.

Volumes 7-11 of a larger set. Each volume with contents complete unto itself.

Bindings gently age worn but still appealing, 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 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. 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 they appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take numerous photos and try to describe it openly and honestly.

Books Measure c. 12" H x 8" W.
