New York: Luther Burbank Press, 1914. First edition . Complete 12 volume set, fully illustrated throughout with tipped on color plates. Comprehensive survey of this noted plant geneticist's groundbreaking work. Very attractive set with almost all volumes in very good condition with the major exception being volume 7 (see complete description). Blue textured cloth with a slight metallic sheen, gilt spine lettering and oval black and white image of Burbank on the front of each volume, top edges gilt, each volume 9.5 inches tall and about 1.5 inches thick. Some edgewear, uniformly faded but attractive spines, all bindings sound with good hinges and firm text blocks, a couple of spine ends and corners a little bumped, some uneven fading to the rear covers of a couple of volumes, pages very clean and free from names or other markings. Volume 7 is internally very good but the front cover is creased at the upper edge, rear cover scratched, chips at upper edge of rear cover and lower edge of front cover, lower spine end bumped but spine consistent with other volumes in the set - damage will not be apparent when the books are shelved.
