Vol. I front pastedown shows original binder's tag of Runting & Jeffcoat, East Harding Street, mounted at bottom binding corner. Originally catalogued as lot #3 in the 1941 three-volume catalog of Newton's library auctioned by Parke-Bernet, where described as "a few plates slightly foxed. . . . original cloth, uncut; covers slightly stained, somewhat worn, a few pages lightly foxed." Respectably preserved, solid VG slightly downgraded due to exposed corners (a "mere" cosmetic issue), with a most desireable provenance.
