New York: Harper & Brothers, 1889. First American edition as edited by Hill, limited to 300 copies (this, no. 180) and one of the finest of all editions of this classic work; 6 volumes, large 8vo, 33 plates, charts, portraits, facsimiles (some folding), and a map; original half red morocco, gilt-lettered direct and gilt-decorated spines, t.e.g.; slight scuffing to several of the boards, but in all a fine set. See Pottle 98 for the Oxford edition of the same: "This has so long held the field as the one edition for scholarly use that it is most unlikely it will ever be superceded." Item #53370
