Two octavos in blind-stamped & ornamentedpolished brown cloth; brown paste-downs and endpapers; Volume One: [2], xi, [2], 16-283 pages; Volume Two: 284 pages. 16 pages of publisher's advertisements at end of volume 1. 19 cm. Boards mildly worn, edges faintly foxed, rubbed in parts; personal owner stamps and names; else tight, clean and overall a very good(+) set. Tiny b&w illus bookplate of John Ruyle to front paste-downs; personal owner names and stamps of previous owners, including small stamp of one Peyton Brooks to a few leaves. Appears that an 'errant' secondary front free endpaper may have been removed from volume one though no such paper exist (or lack of evidence of removal) in volume two, thus perhaps a 'corrected' bindery error.
