Works of Edmund Burke
London: George Bell and Sons, 1902. Eight octavo volumes; contemporary three-quarter green calf gilt; marbled boards, endpapers, and edges; crimson spine labels. Occasional tiny spots of rubbing to joints.
The Bohn's Standard Library edition of Burke's collected works, bringing together his philosophical and political essays, speeches, and letters, including “On The Sublime and Beautiful," “On American Taxation," and “Reflections on the Revolution in France": “The effect of liberty to individuals is, that they may do what they please: we ought to see what it will please them to do, before we risk congratulations, which may be soon turned into complaints." A fine copy of the writings of an influential statesman and philosopher, beautifully bound.
