A fair set of paperbacks. The books are let down by their covers which are heavily foxed, and the spines discolored. Endpapers are also foxed although text is clean, with age toning. Binding is sound. There are some booksellers' ink stamps from Karachi in Pakistan, and the climate there may explain the damage to the covers. One owner's signature to an endpaper. An acceptable reading set.
Text in English.
