Complete inside but plenty of foxing, more or less important depending on the volume and pages.
The plates are well preserved (protected by silk paper) and the colours are still very vivid.

The covering of a cover was damaged by moisture with small damage on two flyleaves.
Despite the reported flaws, this series is in a good general condition.
A beautiful set.
