The covers are lightly soiled and rubbed, and have multiple barely perceptible moisture stains. The edges of the covers are gently bumped. There are a couple of tiny splits in the cloth at the head of the spine of volume 2. There is a very thin light moisture stain that runs from the head to the foot of the spine of volume 4. The pages are very mildly browned.
Illustrated. Work on the contents of this set was first begun in 1894, at the suggestion of Mr. S. S. McClure and Mr. J. S. Phillips, editors of McClure's Magazine.
