Both volumes are quite handsome, many pages unopened/uncut, gilt bright. Both volumes seem to have been exposed to some moisture with stains on Vol. I through to the title page, also a little on rear end papers, and there is a discoloration along bottom edge of pages up to the Preface and from about page 325 to the end papers; Volume II same as the first. There is no mildew or musty odor. Light rubbing to the leather, leather cracked slightly along spine front & back, boards not separated; Vol. II has faint stain from the moisture on front. These look much better than they sound. A nice set. Bookplate of George Allison Armour, 1898, tipped in.
