Attractive original antiquarian leather bindings. Pocket format with self closure flaps.

Set is physically old and each volume shows various signs of handling and time such as chips, tears, looseness of covering or pages inside, etc. 

Bindings gently age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly rubbed but still supple, remains overall very attractive as an object.

Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, internally books remain mostly clean and fairly sound. Books which have been taken care of but do not look like new.

Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive. 

Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present these books as they survive. 

We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take clear photos and try to describe it clearly.
