About This Item

London: H. Virtue. Hardcover. Good+. Complete set of this major and beautifully illustrated work, 6 sm. folio volumes in green cloth. The set looks quite good though there are many small flaws. Spines are darkened somewhat, and spine ends crimped. The engraved plates (photos and art) are foxed, usually the frontispieces most heavily. All have a bookseller's sticker from William Potter, Liverpool, on the front pastedown. Vol. 1, Division 1; has date of 1901 on title page (the rest have no date). Vol. 1 Div. 2 has the front hinge starting, and a red stain near the bottom of the rear board. Vol. 2 Div. 1 has the front hinge starting. Vol. 2 Div. 2 has the front hinge broken, and the title page loose. Vol. 3 Div. 1 has a scar in the cloth of the front cover, front hinge starting and rear hinge weak. Vol. 3 Div. 2 is the worst shaken, with the front hinge broken so that the ffep, frontis and title page have come loose together; also a loose plate ('Sceptre') at p. 700. Good plus overall.
