Book Condition: Very Good


Three volumes (complete). A valiant set. All three books have been subjected to foolhardy storage conditions and their boards bear the consequences of this inconsideration. Hence the books are somewhat curates-egg-ish. Volume 1: Journals 1651-1655. The boards are worn all about. They are marked, scuffed. They are steady and sure. The papertrims are mildly grubby from handling and storage. The contents are mild-mannered. They are clean, clear, comfortable. Volume 2: 1656-1658. Published 1954. The best of the three. The boards have marked, stains, wear, but are at least approaching dignity. They too are stout and steady. The contents are companionable, clean, clear, certain. Volume 3: Journals 1659-1662. Published 1958. The boards are considerably worn and stained and marked from storage. They are resolutely sure and steady. The papertrims are fusty. The contents are placid. There are occasional flurries of light foxing, otherwise the pages are clean, clear, competent, convivial, assured. A useful, eager set nonetheless. Please note that due to the weight of the books, should they need be posted outside of South Africa, additional postage charges would be required. fk.
