About This Item

New York: The Grolier Society, 1918. Bound in morocco leather bindings. These are the original leather bindings and are thick and durable. Gilded spines with a torch and lamp motif. Printed on thick quality paper. Decorative border surrounding the text on each page. Columned text. Heavily illustrated with plates and in text illustrations, some in color. Volume 20 contains the index. These are very large books at 9.75 inches tall. These weigh roughly 2.5 pounds each. 26 inches of shelf space. Excellent condition but with some general wear. The leather is very well preserved. Hinges are all strongly attached and sound. Some internal separation along the paper over the hinges. General usage wear. Some overextended pages. Some dirt, some stains on the first few pages in volume one. No names or previous signs of ownership. This is a large and impressive set that displays beautifully. This set would make an excellent gift and/or addition to any fine library. In addition to their shelf presence, antiquarian books make an excellent investment. We always pack very securely to help ensure safe handling during transit. All books are individually wrapped and are always professionally padded. We offer a full refund guarantee, per our terms described on our site, with notification of such intent requested. Please contact us with any inquiries.
