Henry Thomas Buckle (1821-1862) was an English historian sometimes called the Father of Scientific History.

This book is a reprint. Buckle died in 1862 and the first work in the book is dated 1772. No actual reprint date given but after 1862. Boards very slightly bowed. Shelf wear to bottom edges with some loss of buckram and marbled paper. Page edges have tanning and light soiling. No previous owner marks. Text clean and free of age spotting.
