4 volumes, elephant folio. (44 cm. by 29 cm.) Contents unpaginated, but each volume has well over 1000 pages. Full polished brown calf, gilt-tooled spines, red morocco title labels with gilt titling. All corners worn, front board of volume 1 detached, rear joint to volume 2 beginning to crack, contents VG. I don't know how many plates this set would have had, but there is only one now (frontispiece to volume 1). Still an extraordinary amount of reference material.
