Seven volumes. Vol. 1 was published in Cambridge while the other six volumes were published in London. Vol. 1 in 1859; Vol. 2 in 1871; Vol.3 in 1873; Vol. 4 in 1877; Vol. 5 in 1877; Vol. 6 in 1880; The Index in 1894. This set was part of a large book collection we have purchased that was stored in a basement. This set was left with the edges resting against the wall. The first 6 volumes have staining and discoloration to about a 3" depth on the covers. The index volume, (the seventh volume) has both covers fully discolored. The set is somewhat musty and dusty. The frontpapers have been glued down to the inner covers to cover over the bookplates. One binding is split with vol. 3 having a shaky rear hinge. The original owner has his name inked on a frontpaper and to the top of the Title Page with a date of 1860 on Vol. 1. There are 1", 3", and 5" splits in the hinges. The corners are rubbed. The top ends of three backstrips have loss to the depth of 1 to 2 inches. Very slight pencilling. Paper is still good - no foxing. Still fairly bright gilt lettered backstrips. Volumes 1,2,3 have the publisher's prices of 16/ (shillings)- and 18/- on the lower backstrips so this set must be bound in the original publisher's cloth. The set takes up 12" of shelf space.
