The bindings of this set are termed "half-morocco", as the spines, corners and volume labels are leather, and the remainder of the covers are leather stamped cloth. There is wear, abrasion, and some minor losses at the corners and edges, as is typical of volumes of this age and size. Volumes are 18" x 24 1/2", and weigh from 25 to 32 pounds each. The bindings are tight and all prints are attached and without tears, losses, stains or water damage. There is minor toning throughout, minor foxing on many of the prints,and moderate foxing on a few. The photos shown are typical of the condition of the set overall.
