The South Wood County Historical Museum is searching for antique sets of books, mainly by British authors, for display purposes at the museum.
If you have something that appears similar to the images above that you feel we’d be interested in, please contact us!
May I recommend Blue Moon Books in Stevens Point? They have a wide selection, including the sort of things you are searching for at reasonable prices.
We have a 10 volume set of Stoddard’s Lectures, copyright 1897 in USA, they have the look, are not British, tales of global travels, set is complete.
Also, a cool 30 volume set of old Encyclopedia Britannica, copyright 1891 by R.S. Peale & Co. Just too beautiful to recycle, dark blue with gold covers and an ink- spattered pattern on edges of bound pages. Again, not British.
I will send photos if interested.
