Contemporary three quarter green crushed Levant morocco over marbled boards ruled in gilt. Spines with two raised bands, with gilt lettering and gilt and black ornanmentation. Edmund Burke (1729-1797) was an Irish-born English statesman and author, renowned in his day for his orations in the House of Commons. Burke was sympathetic to the American colonists' national aspirations and to the Irish Catholics, yet hostile to the French Revolution. Besides his political writings, Burke wrote on more purely philosophical topics. His most notable work in this sphere was "On the Sublime and Beautiful", a seminal work in aesthetic theory. Condition: spines are uniformly sunned to an olive green. Also light edgewear. Otherwise, a clean, tight set, and the set as a whole is very attractive, and in our view, quite distinctive, in appearance.
