The three quarter leather binding is essentially perished: leather is dried and flaky, covers detached or missing. That said, the text blocks are tight and clean with no marks. All illustrations and maps present with the exception of North Polar Regions--Chart of the Arctic Ocean which should be in a pocket inside the rear cover of vol 2 but there is no rear cover to vol 2. A small embossed stamp on the title page of each volume. This is a binding set or if purchased as a reading/research set, I would reccommend removing what's left of the bindings as that dried leather will get all over your clothing and work space.
