Eighteen 8.5" x 5.5" volumes, plus a folio atlas. The text volumes are bound in brown cloth with gilt spine lettering. With some scattered soiling to a few volumes, volume one lacking the front blank, and there is a very mild bit of internal soiling. Generally a nice VG+ condition set. One map has a closed margin tear, and the penultimate blank has a damaged spot along the bottom, about 3 square inches. The rare 21" x 14" atlas (dated 1844) is bound in quarter leather, top edge gilt. The binding (and especially the top corners) are a little rubbed and worn, but still a VG+ example of this scarce atlas. The atlas is complete, with two folding charts and forty engraved maps and plans. (The list of plates calls only for 39 maps, but a 40th map with the same Hellert imprint is also present.] Eight of the text volumes volumes feature foldout genealogical charts at the backs. No complete set of this landmark work has appeared at auction (per ABPC) since 2002. Bookseller Inventory #
