Later edition of Clarendon’s History of the Rebellion, handsomely bound. Originally published in 1702-4, Clarendon’s work has been described as “the most sophisticated and finely balanced history yet written in English” (ODNB).

6 volumes, tall octavo (265 x 171 mm). Near contemporary dark blue straight-grained morocco, raised bands, titles and decorations to compartments gilt, decorative ruling to boards and turn-ins gilt, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Extremities very lightly rubbed and bumped, light browning to flyleaves, occasional minor spotting to margins of text blocks. An excellent set.
