Boscobel or the Royal Oak by William Harrison Ainsworth 1st / 1st 1872
First UK edition and first issue - a triple decker - published by Tinsley Brothers in 1872. This is a very good +++ set. The three volumes are in the original publishers binding. The boards on all 3 volumes have light wear to the edges and corners. The volumes have a light lean. The pages are clean and in the main free from foxing or other marks. Overall a very good +++ set and rare in the original binding.
A historical romance based around circumstances where Charles II hid in an oak tree after losing the Battle of Worcester in 1651.
