Exteriors show some wear like rubbing to the outer corners and edges of the spines and boards with some volumes showing a bit of chipping at these rubs.
Volumes also show crazing to the spine faces as well as some between the hinges of the spines and covers which is only superficially effecting the outer layer of the leather binding as no covers are detached and the original bindings remain sturdy and firm.
