The leather is clean and glossy. Spine leather and some labels chipping (vol 4 missing half of label). Some volumes have cracked hinges but none are fragile or separating. Each volume has previous owner's name written on flyleaf. Pages foxed/tanned. Printed on crisp, sturdy laid paper. Engraved frontispiece caused acid stain on opposing pages. Vol IV has a few minor tears within the text. All volumes are square and tightly bound. This is a handsome, uniform set. Additional shipping costs may apply because of item weight.
