Description:

Set of 12 volumes of Beautiful Britain. All are in Very Good + condition. These are all from the Royal Canadian Edition, which was limited to 1000 copies. Each volume in this set is hand-numbered on the copyright page as number 42. All volumes are leather bound and in Very Good + condition. Each measures 22 by 17 cm. All bindings are tight and there is just some sunning on the spines. Each book contains numerous color illustrations with each picture protected by a blank opposing page. All were published by the Cambridge Corporation, Limited, Montreal. Although they are undated, they are from circa 1906. These books make a beautiful set and it is very rare to find a complete numbered set and with such a low number in the sequence. Although it states in the books that 1000 copies were printed, some records show that only 300 copies were actually shipped. A full description of each volume follows.
