THE HISTORY AND DECLINE OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE, by Edward Gibbon, Esq. Fabric bound books previously owned by University of Regina professor, Anatole Murad.
There is a faint mark on the the fifth volume only, which you can notice in the picture, of a coffee mug or other glass. It leaves room for the imagination. Each book has nearly or more than 700 pages. Anatole was a fascinating person. If these books had anything to do with it, you will want his notes in the beginning pages of these rare gems.
