About this Item

Covers leather with gold decoration to edges, spines have black title plates with gold lettering, raised bands, entire spine heavily decorated in gold. Some scuffing to covers and wear and chipping to a few spine edges and ends, else very good. Decorative end papers matched with same decoration on page edges, two owner bookplates on front end pages. Pages very lightly yellowed, virtually no foxing, browning only across from pictures and fold out maps. Text blocks tight and internally very good. Primary flaw: Vols. 2, 6, and 7 one board is detached; Vols. 1, 5, and 8 both boards are detached and spine cover detaching on Vol. 1. Could be repaired quite easily to become a beautiful set. Photos and more detailed descriptions happily provided upon request. Bookseller Inventory # 086691
