Lot is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Lot is not new or in "new" condition.
Bindings gently age worn, joints slightly scuffed, small stain at base of one book as seen, lot remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. Lot displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this useful and essential lot of Chemistry reference books survives.
