Antique 14 volume boxed set of books by William Makepeace Thackeray. This rare set is the New Century Edition dated 1901. The books are beautifully bound in deep blue leather with gilt lettering and top edges gilt. There is an illustration facing the title page of each volume. This complete set is in its original box with the contents listed inside the lid. It is unusual to find a set complete with box and consequently, the seams of the box are intact, although they are a little weak.
Each individual book measures approx. 6 1/4" tall by 4 1/4" wide by 5/8" deep and the book measures 9 1/4" wide by 6 3/4" tall by 5" deep. .
