Appleton & Company", "New York" , "1898" and published "by the Authority of the Board of Directors". There is so much information in these books that I don't know where to start describing any of it. Each volume contains several chapters. I was told that there were only 500 copies of these books published, but I have not been able to verify this statement. Size: 8 1/2" wide by 11 1/2" high. Condition: Overall Excellent with a stain or wear on 2 covers, volume 1 & 3. The pages are nice and clean and there is a little wear on the corners of the covers.
