Rev. Dr. J. Rendel Harris (1852-1941), an immensely learned and intrepid Quaker savant, was a superb New Testament scholar, expert in Syriac and related languages (becoming Curator of Manuscripts at the The John Rylands Library), and really remarkable expert on a broad range of sometimes obscure but surprisingly significant subjects.

Sets of Harris's occasional and important essays are RARE.

This is a complete set (Nos. 6-9 being from a different though same size set, so their wrappers are darker) with clean pages, occasional B&W illustrations, general fading, and a few loose bindings (one or two becoming detached with torn wrappers' spines). No. 10 "The Builders of Stonehenge" has a frayed spine (see illustration) but is holding well.
