Later half biscuit calf, blue marbled boards, spines divided by raised bands, 2nd and 4th compartments lettered direct in gilt, other compartments tooled in gilt. Scattered spotting and foxing, half-titles toned. A little rubbed, particularly to top edge, vol. 1 a touch marked.


One of 'some copies' (Todd & Bowden) with a comma instead of a full stop ending the first line of the title-page in vol. 1. Todd and Bowden record this in copies of both vol. 1 and vol. 2, but in this set the stop-press correction found in 'most copies' has been done in vol. 2.
