The Works of William Makepeace Thackeray Complete 24 Book Set - circa 1869
Published by Smith Elder & Co. London
Complete set of 24 books - including The Christmas Books of Mr. M.A. Titmarsh
Books measure aprox. 5 -3/4 width by 8 -1/2 tall.
The complete set weighs about 50 lbs so the shipping calculates pretty high. Please message first if you are interested in the set as we can figure out what the Flat Rate shipping would be to your U.S. destination and most likely give you a much better rate than what is showing on the Etsy calculated shipping.
International shipping would have to be discussed first.
