Earliest publishing date 1898 and printed in 1902.
Works by the famous authors, 11 small (4 1/4 x 6 1/4 inch) volumes including: Benjamin Franklin, John Ruskin, Thomas DeQuincey, Lord Macauley, Daniel Webster, Thomas Carlyle, Charles Lamb, Abraham Lincoln, W. M. Thackary, Washington Irving, Nathaniel Hawthorne. All have red cloth covers with gilt lettering on spines.
One book does have a personal name written I believe in pencil inside the front cover.
These little books are very nicely preserved and are in very well kept condition. The covers and spines are very nice, gold leaf has been applied to the binding and 99% of these lovely books have their attached marbled fly page in the beginning to help protect the first page of the book. Will not split up the set. Extremely nice and beautiful!
