London: William Baynes and Son, 1822. Leather. 5 vols. A complete set of five hardcover books handsomely bound in 3/4 brown leather with marbled boards. Corners and edges rubbed; a few very small dents along the edges as well. Lots of little rub marks on the spines; some crinkling in the leather of volume IV's spine. Pages a bit browned with age; occasional foxing, spotting, and unobtrusive marginalia in pencil. Most pages unmarked. Binding secure across the set. Attractive-looking and sturdy -- quite nice condition for their age! Item #174494
