Contemporary tree calf, green morocco labels to spines, spines ruled and decorated in gilt. Half-titles to volumes 1 and 2. Contemporary gift inscription, "Chas. Hain gift to W. Hunter 1809 Ship Resolution", to front free endpaper of volume 1. Spine ends and corners chipped and worn, recently varnished, extremities rubbed, boards ink and burn marked, joints splitting, hinges cracked but firm, some spotting and ink marks to edges of text blocks and a little wear to upper fore edge of volume 3 text block, 2 small punctures to front free endpaper and first blank of volume 1, otherwise an internally clean, very good set.

From the gift inscription, it would appear that this copy of Smith's work went to sea, which may explain the wear to the binding.
