A handsomely bound set of Beeton’s Dictionary of Universal Information, originally published 1858–62.

4 volumes, octavo (217 x 142 mm). Contemporary dark brown half calf, brown cloth sides, spines gilt in compartments, all edges sprinkled red, marbled endpapers. Black and white illustrations throughout. Extremities slightly rubbed and bumped, minor wear to corners, board edges lightly sunned, light foxing to prelims and endmatters, occasional spotting to text blocks. A very good set.
