A three-volume set. Set is full bound in tan calf with stunning, intricate gilt tooling on spine, gilt dentelles and fillets on boards, green and red morocco title labels on spine with five raised bands, and gilt edge of text block. Pastedowns are ornately illustrated in gold, black and green. All the volumes are full of beautiful detailed engravings throughout text. Pages are extraordinarily clean and bright with a light scattering of foxing in volume 1, and mostly only to endpapers in 2 and 3. Very faint scuffing to leather on all the books, very close to pristine. This is a truly exquisite set.
