No copies of this history appear on Add-All. There is one complete set listed at the Library of Congress. There is one complete set listed on the British Library online catalogue. Alexander Ranken is known to have authored three books that were theological in nature, however 'The History of France' was his life's work. This is a truly scare item , doubly so with the inscription. The three volumes are housed in a custom slipcase, compartmentalized for each volume. All together a magnificent presentation.
