Does anyone have any information on these books?

Recommended Posts

I went into a charity shop the other day, and I found 4 very nice leather backed books by Harriet Martinaeu called The History of the Peace, I bought them and took them home. The leather backs have a very nice embossed pattern on them. I started reading them this morning and noticed these 4 volumes were published in 1877 and I cannot for the life of me find the same books anywhere, none of my searches have yielded the same boiled with the embossed leather backs. The books say “Bohn’s Standard Library” on the spine but say they were published by “Bell and sons” they are in really good condition for books from 1877 if anyone has any information on these books i.e if they have any value or are of any rarity, let me know!
