Two gigantic volumes in full leather with gilt decoration to fronts and dentille decoration to inside margins of front and rear covers of both volumes. Huge Hardcover no DJ. Very good condition; edges, corners, and covers of book show minor wear. No underlining; no highlighting; no internal markings. All edges gilt; full page illustrations on heavy card stock and protected by tissue guards. Front pages of each volume includes text in red and black indicating a first edition, first issue printing. Hinges are straight and strong. Both volumes are straight and undamaged but for normal wear to leather, tips and spine heads. The dark leather "skin" is wearing away from the natural brown leather underlying this original treatment -- leaving a mottled appearance to the front cover of Vol. 1 and edges of both volumes. Overall an unmatched view into the middle east in the 1860s-1870s. Together the set weighs over 30-lbs. Stored in sealed plastic protection. In the event of a problem we guarantee full refund. 1881.
