Spines rebacked. Calf vibrant and healthy re boards, excepting some edgewear, with small spot of calf worn through on vol 1. Some bumping of corners w/ also calf worn through in some corners. Spines have suffered dryness and cracking, but original spines preserved and mounted in rebacking. Bright gilding on calf boards. Plates are by and large clean. Considerable offsetting of plates. Otherwise, text pages are generally clean, with a few pages with foxing in volume 2. Overall, a very attractive set. If serious interest, I would rather send photos than have you rely on description.
