Finely bound example of Trotter’s compilation of biographies on historic authors. Octavo, bound in full royal blue morocco with elaborate gilt tooling to the spine in six compartments within raised gilt bands, red morocco spine label lettered in gilt, wide gilt ruling and stamping to the front and rear panels, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. In near fine condition.

Trotter states in the preface to the work, "My reasons for disinterring these literary waifs from the tomb wherein many a good thing lies forgotten or hard of access, may be summed up in one simple statement: feeling a father's pride in my own offspring, I own a natural wish that others also should have the chance of admiring them - if they can." Contents include Trotter's works on Mahomet, Thomas Becket, William Pitt, Savonarola, and Sheridan.
