Title page of each volume with a vignette. Some browning and spotting throughout, not interfering with legibility. The title pages often more browned. The stitching in many volumes rather tight and tending to tear the paper slightly in the margin, mainly near the front and back of volumes. This also leads to a slight openness at the gutter, around the beginning and end of many volumes, however the volumes solid, apart from two or three volumes which are a little loose here and one volume split, mentioned below. A few volumes have pages or gathering slightly prominent. Three volumes have some moderately heavy bluish staining to the pages, not preventing the text being read. Bound in brown leather, well looked after and flexible, with two green leather labels on each spine giving the title etc. in gilt, and a little further gilding on the spines. Many of the covers with some rubbing and unevenness of colour, but still attractive. The leather sometimes rubbed on the lower edge of the book, with slight loss of leather on the very corner. One or two volumes with a little fraying at the top or the bottom of spines. A couple of the green labels missing, a few others worn or defective. Heraldic bookplate in each volume, possibly the family of Brodrick: motto ¿A cuspide corona¿ ; a spear with four stylised drops of blood, immerging from a simple coronet. The endpapers in a blue marbled paper, a couple of volumes with the endpapers replaced, lacking the bookplate. Volumes with more noticeable wear: Novels and Tales. Vol. 8: binding split through towards the rear of the volume, one page loose. Vol. 9: light brown stain on the bottom half of many pages, heavier on the last few pages, binding rather weak around the first gathering. Vol. 10: split in the leather on the rear hinge. Historical Romances. Vol. 1; a strip 3cm deep missing from the bottom of the half title page. Vol. 5; hinges strengthened, staining to blank leaves after end papers, some bluish staining to the pages, not affecting legibility.
