Condition

Rebound in half calf. Externally, all volumes very smart. Some handling marks to the boards and some shelfwear to the head and tail of the spines and extremities to all volumes. Internally, firmly bound. Pages in all volumes generally bright and clean. Minor spotting to the very front and read and to the fore edge of each volume, not affecting the text.
