Provenance: From the library of Hugh Cleghorn (1752-1837), a luminary of the Scottish Enlightenment. The binding is elegant and restrained, just as one might expect from an important Scottish library of this time, and is boldly stamped "WAKEFIELD" (the name of Cleghorn's estate at St. Andrews) on the front cover of each volume.

Price (AUD): $425.00  other currencies     Ref: #4504670
