Title: Oxford History of English Literature, a Set of Nine Volumes
Description: Oxford, England, Oxford at the Clarendon Press, . . Hardcover. Size: 8vo 8" - 9" tall. A nice-looking, sturdy, attractive, tightly bound, internally clean set of nine (9) hardcover copies, with unbruised tips, neat and tidy paste-downs; not ex-library, with neither highlighting nor underlining. Very light smudging here and there to the bottom tip of the text-block, very light toning here and there, light dust soiling along top edges, else remarkably attractive and sturdily bound. Dust jackets are all present, though some are price-clipped, chipped lightly, and as is usual with this series, sunned at the spines to an even brown, though the front and rear panels are still remarkably bright and clear.

Chambers] 1945, a First Edition, at 247 pp.; 3) The English Drama 1485-1585 [F.P. Wilson and G.K. Hunter] 1972, at 244 pp.; 4) English Literature in the Earlier Seventeenth Century 1600-1660, Second Edition [Douglas Bush] 1962, at 680 pp.; 5) English Literature of the Late Seventeenth Century [James Sutherland] 1969, at 589 pp.; 6) English Literature in the Early Eighteenth Century 1700-1740 [Bonamy Dobree] 1964, at 701 pp.; 7) English Literature 1789-1815 [W.I.
