It would appear this group has been re-bound, as all covers (4.375' x 6.5") are full tree calf with gilt borders and lettering, with the gilt titles in red backgrounds. However, no bindery is specified. The spines are flaking and most hinges are weak, but all are holding, with no loose covers. There were additional labels on the spines below the title labels, but these are almost or entirely missing. The cover edges are scuffed, but there are no prominent stains. Each volume has double frontispiece illustrations, all of which are in good condition. There are no stamps or other attachments. I've found no writing. The page edges, marbled all around, are unfaded and clean. The bindings are tight, with no loose or missing pages. I've found no page tears and few creases. The page faces are clean, with all text unfaded and legible.Domestic: Flat-rate of $12.00 to anywhere within the contiguous U.S.International: Foreign shipping rates are determined by destination.Location: This item ships from Connecticut
