Vol I: (viii), 485pp, 2pp ads; Vol II: (x), 476pp. A very good set, the bindings square and firm with a few nicks and a little fraying at the spine tips. The contents, with a small chip to the edge of the black coated endpaper of volume I and some toning to the paper stock are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps.
