This set is magnificently illustrated with hundreds of illustrations and maps (including some in full color). Front joint of first volume frayed, and head and tail of spine chipped. Each binding sunned on spine and along edges. Previous owner's inscription on each free front endpaper and dated 1937. Bindings in overall poor (Vol. I) to good- (Vols. 2 & 3), interior in good+ to very good condition. First edition (Vols. 2 & 3); Third edition, revised (Vol. 1). Bookseller Inventory #
