In original publisher's cloth bindings and clipped dust wrappers. Externally, very smart. Some dust wrappers are in better condition than others. The dust wrappers of Vol I, III and IV have a few tears. The other volumes just have slight wear to the edges. There is some slight bumping to the heads and tails of the spines and to the extremities. Some light markings to the boards of some of the volumes. The front hinge of Volume VI is starting but firm. There is some light spotting to the fore edge of Volume II. Internally, firmly bound. The pages are bright and clean with the occasional spot.
Very Good Indeed
