I am assuming that the publishers is Selfridges but cannot find a date. date on the works of William Shakespeare but it is dedicated to Sir XXXXX XXXXXg. It has 1312 pages and there are some illustrations. I don't know if it is leather. It has all the plays in it so I would assume one volume.
As for the book on Monarchs, it is written by Dr. Howell and printed in 1750, from Julius Caesar to George II. I'm afraid the outer covers are detached from the book itself and being so old some of the pages might not be perfect. The text is printed in columns, I don't know who the publisher is I'm afraid. There are 647 pages then a few pages of the Index. I guess being in poor condition it probably isn't worth much.
PS If you have other items of interest please remember my name. Any post addressed to “Kim D” at the head of the question will be sent to my inbox so I can help my return patrons first!
I would be more than happy to work with you again!
Thank you for your help Kim, I live in west London, but would need to decide how much it would cost to repair the book.
Thank you very much for your help, I live in Middlesex so the book repair people you have given me are quite some distance away from me. At least it has given me an idea as to what they are worth. Sherry
