Chicago: McDonnell Brothers. Hardcover. Folio. Bound in modern matching three quarter black leather over red cloth covered boards with black titles to spines. Inlaid in both covers are pieces from the original cloth bindings with the original gilt title stamps. Small chip to head of spine of second volume. Minor wear to bindings including light wear to spines, edges of boards, and corners. slight fraying to cloth where cloth meets the leather corners. Bookplate to front pastedowns, which appear to be preserved and re-adhered from original binding. The bookplates have been pasted down upside-down with a few water spots. Slight browning and occasional smudge marks to page margins, but clean and bright overall. Remnants of glue to rear pastedowns suggesting that these might be ex-library; however, no other noticeable library markings. Chipping and closed tears to edges of some pages. Large fold-out map in first volume; however, it is currently in several pieces with several large chips. Full marbled edges. An attractive set. 836 pages. AMER/011821. Very Good.
