Copyright 1896, published in 1898 by Charles Scribner's Sons (New York). Frontispiece illustrations with tissue paper in each volume, some have an additional illustration later in the book. All of the pages of each volume have a very faint watermark impression of the publisher's initials which are "CSS". No dust jackets. Green hardcovers with gilt design are fading and have scratches, smudges, spots, nicks, and wear at the corners. The spines are significantly faded with indentation occurring on the backstrip. The top-edges of the textblocks are gilt and have scratches. The fore-edges and bottom-edges of the textblocks are uncut.

'When a Man's Single' is cracked at page 68-69 and there is a tear on page 40. The spine head of 'The Little Minister, part 2' has a small tear and it is cracked at page 370-371. 'Auld Licht Idllys' is cracked at page 78-79 and again at 128-129. 'My Lady Nicotine' bows inward towards the foreedge and is cracked at page 100-101 and starting to crack at the top of the front hinge. The front cover of 'Sentimental Tommy Part 1' has a square spot, which the cover is faded around; it is also cracked at page 148-149.

The previous owner's stamp is on the front free endpaper. On the front endpaper, a previous set of ex-libris stickers were removed. The illustrations were printed on a different paper and are bound with an additional strip showing at approximately page 2-3 (in other words, illustrations are intact and none have been cut out). There is no writing in the books. Only 6 volumes are available, which are a part of a 12 volume set. Overall, due to the cracks in each volume, the set is in Good minus (G-) condition.
