[BURKE, William and Edmund, attributed].
An Account of the European Settlements in America. In Six Parts, etc., etc.

pp. (viii), 3-312. Folding engraved map of South America by BOWEN; (iv), 3-300, (20) Contents. Folding engraved map of North America by BOWEN. Contemporary tan calf with all board edges gilt, the spine edges starting to crack, but all joints still firm, a tiny spot of adhesion to the map in v.I, foxing at the ends of each volume, heraldic book-plates of G. PALMES, a very good set.

*It is still an open question as to which of the Burkes was the primary author. This was a very popular work, much reprinted, even into the nineteenth century, though the first edition is rather scarce.
