This is a very good copy of the First English edition set without dust jackets as issued. The gilt lettering on the spines and the tissue-guarded color plates are bright. All volumes have scuffed covers, worn edges, bumped and frayed corners and spine heads and tails, and light foxing on the front matter.

Division I has tears at the head; else fine. There is a previous owner’s name stamped on the front free endpaper; contents fine. Division II has two small water stains on the front cover; else fine. The front hinge of Division III is cracked; contents fine. Division IV has two small water stains and a small dent on the cover; the front hinge is weak; else fine.
