Nicolas-Edme Roret [1797-1860] was the editor of a groundbreaking popular series of Victorian-era technical "encyclopedias". Roret came from a family of booksellers and printers, and in 1822 he began publishing scientific works, and then began his "Librairie Encyclopedique de Roret", a series of technical manuals on the history and practice of science, manners, arts and crafts, and trades. The "Manuals Roret", written by professionals and experts in their subjects, eventually totaled some 300 titles, touching on subjects ranging from astronomer to National Guardsman to painter and butcher. The manuals were a huge success, and many titles went through several editions. DESCRIPTION: Softcover. 4"x6.25", 204 pages, with several line illustrations, plus a 36-page catalog of other Roret titles. CONDITION NOTES: The covers have some wear and soil. The book interior has some soil, spotting and light wear, page creases, etc. - - - - - - OVERSEAS BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: Our International shipping charges are based on the weight, when boxed for shipping, of each book -please check the postage chart for the cost of shipping to your country.

Please use the “Shipping & Payments” tab (above) to check the cost of shipping. We charge actual shipping based on weight, so sometimes large, heavy, inexpensive books can actually cost more to ship than the book itself costs –I know that seems odd, but the shipping cost is based on the actual weight of the book, not its selling price.

We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as ‘gifts’ to avoid import duties, as this is illegal in most countries. - Member of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers.
