I need some help in identifying if these old books I have might be of any value - here is some info about them: 1) “Sullivans View of Nature” Volumes 5 & 6 – A View of Nature in Letters to a Traveller Among the Alps with Reflections on Atheistical Philosophy now exemplified in France. By Richard Joseph Sullivan, Esq. F.R.S. & F.A.S. in six volumes (of which I only have the 2 mentioned above). London: Printed for T. Becket, Pall Mall Bookseller to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and their Royal Highness, the Duke of York & Clarence & by the Junior Princess, 1794. The outer leather covers of these are a little worn – especially on the spines. The spine of Vol. 6 is partially torn from the back cover (not all the way). I’ve also attached some pictures of these. The pages are all intact – though a little yellowed as are the other books mentioned below. 2)“Debates of the Lords” Volume I – VIII. The History and Proceedings of the House of the Lords From the Restoration in 1660, to the Present Time. Volume the First, from 1660, to 1697; London, Printed for Ebenezer Timberland in Shipyard, Temple-Bar, & Fold by the Bookfellers in Town & Country, 1742. I’ve attached a couple of pictures of this book, the inside cover and the title page of Volume I (obviously each Volume of the 8 has it’s own wording in the title page referencing the info i.e. “Volume the Second ect….) The outer leather covers of these books are worn but in good shape, the spines aren’t broken ect…..the pages themselves are a little yellowed with age, but in good shape – not ripped or anything. I believe the 8 volumes is a complete set.
