SMYTH, William Lectures on Modern History From the Irruption of the Northern Nations to the Close of the American Revolution

William Pickering, 1848.

Fifth edition. Two volumes. Full polished tan calf, raised bands to the spine, leather title labels lettered in gilt, gilt decoration in the section, with gilt rules and gilt armourial device of the East India College to the upper cover. Blue ribbon page markers and marbled endpapers. All edges marbled. A very good set, with a little rubbing to the joints.

The views entertained by Professor Smyth, both of the objects and the treatment of history, are developed with great precision, and with much elegance and animation. [Contemporary review]. Smyth's lectures start with the Romans , progress through the Dark Ages, Medieval England, the Reformation, the reigns of British Kings and Queens, and end with the American War of Independence.
