Lugduni: Philippi Borde & Laurentii Arnaud. Antique 1663 complete 2 volume folio set. The books are overall in good condition with some signs of wear and age. The leather covers have some scuffing and wear with some corner wear and edge wear. There are small sections of cracking towards the top of the 2nd volume's outer leather joints and some cracking to the interior hinges of both volumes; however, the bindings of the books are still good and sound. Both volumes have a nice engraved title page and the first volume also has an additional half title. There are some crease lines/ wrinkles to the 2nd volume's title page. A couple of the pastedowns have some small handwritten numbers to the top margin in fountain pen. The interiors are toned from age but are fairly clean with some scattered light foxing, soiling, and grubbiness. A few pages have some worming. Most of the worming is pretty minor; there are just about 10 leaves or so in the "S" section where it is a bit heavier. Page 545/546 in the 1st volume has a fair amount of chipping to the bottom margin, however no text is affected. Along with that there is likely the very occasional page with some kind of other minor imperfection such as a small tear or chip, mild stain, minor marking, creased page corner, etc. The books are large volumes which measure approximately 15 3/8 inches by 9 1/2 inches. The text is collated and complete. There are some printing errors in a few of the page numbers; however, the content is correct. Volume 1 is 959 pages and volume 2 is 855. ************This is an oversize 2 volume set which will r … [Click Below for Full Description]
