An attractive set but with some wear. The leather has light surface wear to each volume. Most have a neat previous owner's name to the ffep. Part 4 of Back to Methuselah (pp139–205) has been heavily annotated in pen and pencil as if being edited for production. Androcles has a little underlining in pen. Otherwise the copies are in good readable condition.
