"The Story of the Greatest Nations" by Edward S. Ellis and Charles Horne. Published by Francis R. Niglutsch, 1903. Nine volumes in three quarter leather bindings, raised bands on spine, gilt lettering, marbled endpapers, the complete fine binding package. Each volume is fully illustrated.
Some light edgewear here and there, overall a very clean and solid set. Gilt is still bright, pages are still white and clean, leather still supple, bindings are tight.
