The covers (app. 4.875" x 7") are in fair to good condition, with scuffed leather spine and marbled boards, shallow bumps to the leather outside corners, notable stains to the marbled boards of volumes III and IV, and slightly faded but legible gilt lettering. The spines and boards are attached. Most spines are straight. Two are slightly cocked. One front end page is missing. One is torn. A few end pages are partly loose. The bindings are otherwise secure, with no text pages loose or missing. There are a number of shallow tears, with some missing edge areas. Almost all are ¼" or less. One upper outside corner has a larger section (about 1.25") missing. None of these extend into the text areas. There are a few pencil notations, but almost all pages have none. There are no stamps or other attachments. All the pages are sunned to their borders, but there are few other stains. This is a complete set, with all text present, but with a number of flaws.
