The covers (app. 5.125" x 7") are in good overall condition, with some flaws. The leather spines, with four raised bands, gilt lettering and decoration, have minor end wear and surface cracking to their sides, except for Volume IV, which has a partial split to the front hinge, with consequent looseness to the front cover, which is still attached. The marbled boards are also in good overall condition, with shallow edge wear but no deep tears or significant fade. Volume IV is again the exception, with notable warping (see photo). The insides are in good condition, with light stains to some edges, all of which are marbled. There are occasional spot stains to the page faces, almost all of which have none. The many illustrations and all text are unfaded and clearly legible. The bindings are secure, with no loose or missing pages. There are no page tears and few creases.
