336; 406pp. Sextodecimo [17 cm] Decorative marbled brown leather with gilt tooled spines, and red leather gilt stamped spine labels. Gilt rolled edges. Marbled endsheets. Very good. The spine and covers are rubbed, and the underlying boards are exposed at the corners. There are small losses from the leather at the ends of the spine. The largest loss measures 1/2 of an inch wide by just under 1/4 of an inch deep. There are also a couple of 1/2 inch long cracks in the joints at the ends of the spine. The top edges of the text blocks have a couple of small light damp stains. The front pastedowns have two previous owners' labels. There is a contemporary gift inscription on the verso of the front free endsheet of volume 1. There are very occasional small light stains on the pages. The pages are actually quite bright.
