Notes: This set was specially put together to make a complete set of works by William Hickling Prescott with original illuminated title page by Joseph Francis Daly. Custom bound in brown leather casing with gold guilded print on spine. Emile Rousse(lle?)--of Paris may have been the binder as he did a set for Joseph Francis Daly, Michaud's History of the Crusades also in Rare Collection.
"This collection of Prescott's historical and miscellaneous works in 16 [15 actual count] volumes all original editions, is extra illustrated with 1197 plates of which 141 are proofs and 2 are original drawings. There are 581 portraits, 371 views, 166 historical scenes, 5 plans of cities, 25 plates of figures, 19 plates of type of inhabitants, 18 maps, 3 illum[inated] coat of arms and 15 illuminated title pages. Also historical documents, originals with autograph of Charles V and Philip II, an autographed letter of Prescott and one of Charles P. Dorey on the portraits of Columbus."
Each volume has notations written in by illustrator on the front flyleaf giving specific information on the added materials in it.
These notes were made by Joseph Francis Daly, Justice of the N.Y. State Supreme Vourt about 1906-7. It was his hobby to illustrate books and have them bound. [This note was taken from another set he also worked on "Michaud's History of the Crusades also in the Rare Collection.].
