Published from 1911 to 1913. Complete set of four large, heavy volumes in beige / light brown cloth with rubbed leather spine labels, onlaid. In fair to good condition. The spine labels are significantly rubbed and a large piece of the lower spine label on Volume I has rubbed away completely. All volumes have marks to the boards; Volume IV has some pale purple streaks to the rear board. Boards are bumped at spine ends and corners, rubbed at the corners exposing boards. Deckled / untrimmed page edges. Some foxing throughout. The bindings are reasonably firm though there are a few shaken spots, Volume II has a light crack to front inner hinge after half-title page, Volume III has partially repaired full-length cracks to both inner hinges (see photos) - these may benefit from further strengthening if regular use of the volumes is required. Not a pretty set but a fairly serviceable one. pp. xviii, [i], 449; xii, 540; xii, 609; xii, 692. 32cm. DELIVERY: The cost of sending these within the UK MAINLAND is included in the price.
