There is a thin loss from the cloth at the foot of the fifth volume. There are a few large damp stains on the endsheets. The pages are foxed here and there, and have sporadic light tide marks, however the majority of the pages are quite bright. The threads are visible in the inside margins of some of the pages in volume VI. The bindings are very sturdy. Complete, with 18 plates.
