London: Folio Society. Consecutive years represented by classics in their specialty, full-length reprints furnished with color plates and hardbound in matching black cloth casebindings, the five supplied with a very sturdy labelled box. Beautifully designed, of course; Folio rarely flubs when it comes to book design. Everything in as-new order, the box as well: totally sound, clean and unmarked. Our source for this run did not read his books, just liked to have them around, and was blessed or cursed with much disposable income. "A History of England" as issued by Folio can run up to twelve separate volumes; this five-book set omits the Roman period, and the six full-length studies later than the Trevelyan in hand. Probably no assortment weightier than this fiver was housed in a single box, as this is; the twelvish set supplies each book with its own slipcase.
