About This Item

26 volumes (Complete 6th Edition in 20 volumes with the Supplementary edition in 6 volumes), 11 inches tall. A soft light brown leather and board with corner pieces with raised bands and very fine gilt lettering. There is some foxing and browning of leaves and pages, raised library embossing on first pages. Some sloughing of binding and blotching. The 6th edition is difficult to find and this is an impressive well cared for set.
