Condition: The covers of volume 1 have leather tearing off of them, lettering label as pretty much perished. Covers of volume 2 are completely off and the spine is missing, exposing the text block Early pages in both volumes have some edge wear/chipping, foxing, and toning. Bookplates for Harry Worcester Smith (MFH of the Grafton Hounds in Massachusetts). All edges of both volumes are toned. There is an envelope belonging to Mr. Smith affixed to volume 2's front free endpaper, with contents presumably being "Typewritten data from the Spirit of the times, Dec. 19, 1836". Aside from the condition of the outside, we must stress that these volumes are in remarkable condition internally, each text block very secure despite the outward faults.
