Illustrated with many colour plates out of text and illustrations in black and white.

Many themes: birds, quadrupeds, monkeys... etc... etc...

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.
Good condition of the bindings but with friction on the covers and wear on some corners and spine.
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.

Weight: 20 kg, sending (secure) via mondial relay every time if the destination will allow.
If there is a surplus of port, it will be systematically refunded.
