Bindings remains clean, tight, and sound, various mostly small signs of age, time and handling, nothing offensive or major. Overall each remains a nice looking example, maybe a bumped spine end, some light surface soiling to first issue, still mostly clean, sound, tight.
Small age flaws or defects include possible random old corner creasing, tiny minor edge chipping, slight surface staining to spots on some covers, etc. Each remains an overall entirely acceptable example. The pictures give a very good sense of how they survive.
Text blocks remains overall clean, and displays a pleasing age patina.
