In the publisher's original cloth bindings. Externally, very smart. Light bumping to the head and tail of spine. A few light marks to the spine of volume I. Stamp to the front pastedowns. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright. Scattered spots to the first and last few pages. Otherwise, just the odd spot.
