Usual xlib marks, on the spines & stamps on the title pages. Covers worn on the edges. Firsts pages of volume one are soiled from thumbing. The rest of the volumes look pretty much untouched. These came out of a religious library, so one might suppose they were not part of the usual reading material used by the patrons. This is a very hard set to find. Having a relatively small population in the region in 1900, one might presume this is a fairly small edition. ; Ex-Libra... View more info
