A stunning 1923 desk set, seven volumes, including atlas, bound in fine olive calf by Sangorski & Sutcliffe of London.

The set comprises two smaller volumes - Nuttall's Bijou Pronouncing Dictionary Of The English Language, 636pp; and The Bijou Dictionary Of English Synonyms & Antonyms, 750pp - along with a Dictionary Quotations-Biography, 222pp; a Dictionary Italian & English, 470 pp; New Pocket Dictionary French & English, 275pp; and A Dictionary Of English Literature, 115pp.

Underneath these volumes, in its own compartment is a larger volume - the Rand McNally World Atlas Travel Edition, 432pp.

The seven volumes are housed in a three-sided slipcase, also of leather and tooled in gilt, with marbled paper lining the interior of each compartment.

All books with square tight bindings, clean interiors, with gilt tooling and titling. Spines faded to a rich golden brown. Atlas maps feature full glorious color. A few minor scuffs and edge wear, which also applies to the slipcase.

Overall, an incredibly handsome set and a fine addition to the desk or shelves of any modern-day personal library.
