H S Nichols & Co., London 1895 Hardcover Very Good No Jacket Hardcover 
Two volumes (complete). A shabbily stately set. The Prussian blue boards of both books have stamped gilt borders, crest, titling. They are worn all about, scuffed, marked from handling and shelving. They are sturdy and sure. Untrimmed pages. Some pages are also uncut. Despite some aging wear here and there, the contents are comfortable and assured.

The pages are clean, clear, bold, confident, scandalously entertaining, assured. fn
