In original publisher's paper wraps. Externally, excellent. Only some very minor wear to the heads and tails of the spines and to the extremities. Internally, generally firmly bound. Some of the plates are loosely bound in. Pages are very bright and clean. There are some inconsistencies with the map listings and their actual count. Three of the works state there are maps to the endpapers in the list of maps but these are not present.
