Uneven fading to cloth and spines are very faded with a few marks. Slight fraying to board corners. Some scattered foxing present, some foxing to plates - some badly foxed to margins, others just a little, others clean. All plates and tissue-guards present. Some plates detached mostly in The Age of Oak, some of these are worn at edges and creased but not affecting the subject of the plate. All volumes are first editions 1904-1908. A few margin marks.
