All the books in the collection are in similar condition. Taking into account the time since publication, the books are in very good condition. The books have half leather, half cloth board covers, the cloth part of the covers has some fading to them and the occasional white spotting marks as well. There is some very light bumping to the corners of the cover and also some bumping to the head and tail of the spines. The books have pretty gold gilted leather spines, which do have some scuffing and bumping marks, but overall the spines are in very good shape. The cut pages within have gold edging on the top edge, there is a small amount of soiling on the page edges, and a very small amount of soiling and foxing marks on the actual pages, but overall the pages are clean, bright and are in very good condition. The binding for all the books is tight, overall a very nice collection of books, which would look great on any bookshelf.

There will be a courier delivery price of £17 for this collection due to the amount of books in the collection.
