Wirceburgi (Wurzburg): Franc. Xaver. Rienner, 1789. Editio novissima. Leather. 17 vols. Ex-library. An incomplete set of seventeen hardcover books bound in 3/4 brown leather. Several of the spines are chipped at the extremities. Some of the title plates have been rubbed off over time. A few of the covers are starting to crack off, but none are yet detached. The edges are scuffed and the covers are stained and soiled. Library markings inside and on the spines, and the pages are a bit tanned with age; occasional unobtrusive foxing here and there. The title page in the volume on the Deuterocanonicals is quite soiled. The binding is secure across the set. Clearly used and damaged on the exteriors, but still in good reading condition. Item #167881
