A thorough and scholarly work which is still useful today. A classic, in depth study, a model of scholarship.
Splendid, clean condition. As if the set was placed in a glass case 100+ years ago and was just removed recently. Any flaws to bindings or contents very small and minor, unworthy of comment. Gilt is bright, a most attractive set.
