Overall a good condition set, although varies from good to very good. The newer volumes are generally in better condition. Some have sunned covers, some strained hinges, and some wear to leather spines. Text is bright and clean. With red edges to text blocks. Occasional minor faults, but really a pretty good set of volumes for its age.
