The volumes from 1827 and 1829 have foxing, but the plates are still great please consult the pictures, as they show the condition of the coloured plates. The volume from 1829 is lacking the title page and has suffered some loss on the spine. The hinges are rubbed, damaged at the top and bottom, but the text block is holding tight. The books are in condition good enough to be opened and read.
