Octavo [23 cm] 3/4 brown leather with brown pebbled cloth covered boards, raised bands, leather gilt stamped spine labels, and blind stamped decorative patterns on the spines. Marbled edges and endsheets. Very good condition. The covers are subtly faded. The edges of the covers are lightly rubbed. The underlying boards are exposed at the corners. The corners of the covers are also gently bumped. Several volumes have small chips in the leather at the head of the spine. The front pastdowns have a former owner's bookplate. Occasional very light foxing throughout the pages.
A very attractive set.
