All 5 volumes are bound in a
3/4 Light,Red Leather Binding,
Of The Era That The Books Were Printed.
Matching Marbled Boards & Endpapers!
Top Edges Are Gilt!
5 Raised Bands On Spines,
Forming 6 Compartments With
Gold Flowers & Gold Lettering.
Fore Edge & Bottom Edge Of
Paper is "rough cut".
(A simple definition would be:
When the book was bound in such a way that the
fore edge and bottom edges of the paper were looped in the
binding process, and had to be cut before the book could be read.
Occationally you can find a book in which
the pages were never cut open,
which would be referred to as "Uncut Pages".)
All Bindings are Tight & Hinges are Secure!
With No Weaknesses!
Leather is in Very Good Condition,
with Rub Marks To Edges, &
Corners are Bumped.
Almost all of the pages are perfection!
A few pages have some scattered
foxing, but only a few.
(Mostly on the endpapers and Title Pages)
No Fingerprints, or Writing On Pages!
A Very Few Of The Pages Were Apparently
Cut In Haste, And Do No Have Clean Cuts.
(Does Not Affect Any Of The Text)
But The Overall Majority Of The
Pages Are Pristine!
One volume, Pride & Prejudice, has had
Professional Repairs to the outer corners
to reinforce them. The original leather is still there,
with a perfect match laid under it. The very edge of
the fore edge of the top board has a somewhat uneven
feel to it. But only at the very tip of the edge.
(see picture #8)
There is also a small loss of paper at the top corner
edge of the first few pages in this book.
(Does Not Affect Any Text Pages)
And The last endpaper at the end of the book
has been replaced.
Please Take The Time To Look At All The Pictures!
They Are An Accurate Depiction Of The
Condition Of These Books!
I have really tried to go overboard in describing
any imperfections in this set.
But They Are In Very Good + Condition.
Bindings & Pages Are Securely Attached.
You will not have to be concerned about
handling & reading these books.
And after all.....that is their purpose!
It is just a bonus that they look good too!
