Some of the titles contained includePlant and Animal Intelligence  by Nathaniel S. Shaler, An Angel in the House by Harriet Prescott Spofford, Is English Becoming Corrupt by Thomas R. Lounsbury, and The Sea-Child by Ehtel-Watts Mumford.

With many plates throughout, sixteen of which are coloured (collated complete), and hundreds of in-text illustrations.

CONDITION

In decorative brown cloth bindings with gilt detailing. Externally smart, with just some light rubbing and wear to the heads and tails of the spines. More pronounced wear to the head of volume 97. Some bumping to the corners. Internally, generally firmly bound, although tender in places with some pages working loose. Hinges are slightly strained, with closed tear to title page of volume 29 . Frontispiece of June 1902 to November 1902 detached. Pages have  just the odd spot (with some heavier foxing and spotting to the first and last few pages), but are very bright. Overall: VERY GOOD.
