Beautiful Zaehnsdorf presentation set in full green leather with small gilt vignette to the front board and ornate gilt tooling and red title bands to the spines. There is a little surface wear and sunning to the boards with slight sunning to the spines otherwise the binding is in good condition, gilt nice and bright. All edges bright gilt. Marble end-papers with previous owners' label to the front paste down. Binding tight. Pages are generally very clean despite some foxing to the prelims and towards the rear. Overall a good set of this classic English biography. Would make an ideal gift.
