Library quarter morocco over maroon cloth. An immaculate and untouched set, without library stamps, each part (volume) with the bookplate of a North of England Library and Museum Reference Department and with the blindstamp of the library on the outer top cover of each volume.

A binding of this quality would nowadays cost in the region of £300 for the set of 3 volumes.
