Gilt lettering and decoration. Leather shows moderate rubbing along edges and on spine bands. There is significant rubbing on spine near foot of volume I. Lettering is fairly good on spine and decoration is fair. Lettering and decoration on front covers is good. All edges are gilded. A minimal amount of bio-predation is seen on some corners. Light to lightly moderate foxing scattered throughout, affecting a couple of the steel engravings. Front free end page on volume II has a vertical wrinkle down the page. Volumes are very tight and otherwise intact. 49 steel engravings, and numerous other illustrations. Despite noted flaws, the set remains attractive and very enjoyable to use.
