Condition

All three books are in very good condition and are attractively bound in patterned paper. The pages are clean bar some foxing to New Poems, and the inner bindings are secure. The dustwrappers are all heavily worn, particularly to the joint. On the dustwrappers: Foliage lacks the spine, the other two volumes heavily torn. However, the books are equally delightful with or without the wrappers.
