Very good copy of this history of England complete in 3 duodecimo volumes.

Decorative and beautiful-looking bindings, very well-made, in marbled calfskin with period glaze. Spine adorned with lovely panels with fleurons and mosaic labels. Bands on the board edges, red edges.

This is the third edition of this good history book which was reissued many times and had several translations in the late 18th century.

The author, Abbé Millot, was accepted by the Académie Française in 1777 where d'Alembert reassured the philosophers about choosing an abbot by telling them: "He is a priest only by his habit".
