Book Condition: Very Good with no dust jacket
Very Good/No Jacket. 1st Scribner's Edition. THREE Volume set: Each Book of the set has an average page count of about 400 pages. Top edges gilt. All with deckled page edges which cause a slight amount of soiling to these edges. Very slight sunned spines. Volume 1 has 1/2 inch tear to top of spine tip. Volume 2 has a light cup stain on back board and small stain on front board. Corners show very minor bumps. A bit of light smudge and a bit of very light foxing here and there throughout the pages. Text clear and sharp, bindings solid. Boards are straight, tips are pointed, spines are square, and pages are otherwise clean. This particular set is illustrated throughout with wonderful illustrations. All of Thackeray's illustrations are retained, and are reproduced from first impressions, both for clearness and to avoid the tampering of engravers with later plates, evident in many even of the earlier sets.
