Scarce set, original paper wrappers bound in. Lovely early owners custom engraved allegorical book plates.

Set is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Set is not new or in "new" condition.
Bindings gently age worn, leather rubbed and scuffed but still supple, sunning to leather, joints slightly surface scuff-abraded, covers all well attached, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, light to moderate scattered age spotting, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. Set displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
