These are foxed in Vol I, and are soiled in Vol II, with damage to both the engraved and the printed title pages (resulting in a hole to the former), where crude efforts have been made to scratch out 'Vol II', presumably to pass the odd vol as being complete. c18x11.5cms, in the original bindings of green cloth, rebacked, with the original spines, lettered and decorated in gilt, laid down. Binding matched except that Vol II is 2 or 3 mm wider and taller than Vol I. Bindings are firm, clean, and slightly knocked. VG.
