Rollo's Tour in Europe- Boxed Set

The Rollo's Tour in Europe was one of the most popular series for juveniles in the mid and late 19th century. The ten book series was published by 27 different publishers between 1853 and 1907.
The first editions were published by W. J. Reynolds (Volumes 1-6) and Brown , Taggard and Chase ( Volumes 7-10).

The Series:
On the Atlantic 1853
In Paris 1854
In Switzerland 1854
In London 1855 (copyright is 1854 but first edition title page has 1855)
On the Rhine 1855
In Scotland 1856 (Copyright is 1855 but first edition title page is 1856)
In Geneva 1857
In Holland 1857
In Naples 1858
In Rome 1858

Here is a stunning example of a boxed set from 1860. This set, published by Brown, Taggard and Chase, includes all 10 volumes. It includes books published in 1858, 1859 and 1860.
Most of the Rollo publishers in the 19th century did put together boxed sets but they are incredibly rare.
