8vo 8" - 9" tall; Lea and Blanchard, Philadelphia; 1848 - 1849. Complete in 12 volumes, bound in six books. Uniformly bound in dark red cloth with ornate blind stamped floral border designs to boards; decorative illustration to covers and title lettering at spines brightly in gilt. Each of the volumes is soundly bound with complete and intact original endsheets. Volumes have mild bumping to corners; several have mild rub through to cloth at one or two corners. Light crimping and flaking of cloth at crowns of the spines and mild nicking at tails. Scattered moderate foxing to endpages and here and there in the margins of the page blocks. Each book has evidence of a small bookplate removed from the front pastedown. Vol 12 has a light damp line across the corner of the cover board but not affecting any internals. The first book - housing Vols 1, 2 and 3 - has a bump to the lower edge of the text block and has resulted in a jagged but closed snag to the lower edge of the first 15 or 20 leaves. Two of the volumes have a signature or two starting at the front edge. Overall a solid and shelf-attractive set, complete and unmarked. VG- . ... Oversize book set may require additional charges for shipping.
