Publishers dark green cloth bindings with gilt ruling and lettering to the spines and grey endpapers. A fine set of books in very good dustwrappers, designed by Michael Harvey with some toning to the spines and a small amount of rubbing to extremities. The dustwrappers in some volumes have been price clipped and new price labels attached. Volume 19 has a small tear to the top front hinge of the wrapper. Overall a very good set.
