The five books fit into a wooden box, lacquered with a tartan pattern, that contains six compartments and a glass-paned lid. One compartment has a portrait of Robert Burns with a magnifying glass that fits over it. Surrounding the portrait are the title, Mite Series in Tartan, and the publisher's information. Bryce published this set with various combinations of books. All five volumes are bound in red roan wrappers gilt-stamped with the titles on the front covers. The dictionary shows some slight chipping to the front free endpaper and frontispiece page, and the box shows some light wear. Only two institutional copies of the set are recorded, each with different combinations of books. A fine, uncommon set in the desirable tartan box. (1 by 3/4; 25x19mm).
