Publisher: Printed for George and Alexander Ewing, at The Angel and Bible, and William Smith, at the Hercules In Dame-Street, and George Faulkner, in Essex Street., Dublin
Copyright: MDCCXLVIII (1748)

CONDITION: These books are in good condition for their age. Leather. Original, full, mottled calf with beautiful hand tooled gilt on spine and five raised bands. The boards have a wonderful and unusual leopard-patterning which makes these volumes stand out. Covers are worn along edges and corners with some surface rubbing and wear to outer hinges. Some loss to head/tail of spine as well as title labels. These hard-to-find books were printed for renown booksellers and binders George and Alexander Ewing and William Smith of Dublin. Outer hinges are fragile though still attached. Inner hinges are strong. The text block is adorned by printer devices. Pages are age toned with some occasional foxing but still crisp. The title page bears the ink signature of Robert Cuninghame and though I cannot authenticate it, I believe it is General Robert Cuninghame, 1st Baron Rossmore, (18 April 1726 - 6 August 1801) who was an Irish British Army officer and politician. Cuninghame was a General in the Army who fought at an early age at the Battle of Culloden in 1746 with the 14th Foot. He later served as Commander-in-Chief of Ireland from 1793 to 1796. The typography is lovely. Handsome set.
