Historia ( Swedish translation of A History of the English-speaking Peoples)

Skoglunds, Stockholm, 1956-1958, hardcover. The first Swedish edition of HESP, published by Skoglunds, 1956-58. Four good sized volumes, 150 x 225 mm, illustrated with photos. There were 3 bindings offered: unbound in card covers, blue cloth, and half leather. This set bound in the publisher's extra cost leather binding in natural tan spines over patterned boards. What makes this special is the fact that the owner paid extra and then left the dustjackets over the beautiful leather bindings. The result is superb unfaded books. Three vols have publisher leaflets laid in. The vol. 3 DJ has a loss at base of spine. Item #3666
