Printed By: R & R Clark Limited, Edinburgh


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!
