The vellum covers have some mild soiling and wear. The bindings of the books are good and sound. There is an old "Chateau des Coudreaux" stamp to the top of the front feps and a period name inscription to the front pastedowns & front blank flyleaves. The pages are lightly toned from age but are fairly clean, with just some occasional light foxing, soiling, and grubbiness. There is some very light and trivial damp-staining to the bottom margin of the last few pages of the second volume.
Along with that, there may be the occasional page with some kind of other minor imperfection such as a creased page corner or wrinkle, tiny chip or tear, minor stain, etc. Generally though, its a very nice set. The books measure approximately 6 1/2 inches by 3 3/4 inches. Volume 1 is illustrated with 2 portraits and is 476 pages long. Volume 2 is illustrated with 6 plates and is 555 pages long.
Both volumes have an unpaginated table at the rear. The text is in French. Please look at all of the photos to further note the condition.
