This is a two volume set containing four books bound in smooth calf leather. 1775 / 17th Edition. Two books are contained in each of the two volumes. There are raised bands with six compartments on the spines with titles in gilt on red leather overlays. Volume numbers are also in gilt. The spines are slightly darkened compared to the book boards. There is a shadow of a circle on the front of volume 1 with some traces of water spots on the front and back of Volume 1 that somewhat blends with the leather. There are also two small scuff marks on the cover. The corners of the covers are slightly rounded, neat, trim, straight. The bindings are tight and have been reinforced in places. The end papers are discolored in a border shape from a chemical reaction to the glue used on the end papers. The laid paper pages are clean, but with some faint foxing. The frontispiece is a full page copper engraving of Johannes Locke. There are armorial bookplates of Nicholas Hill in each volume. Twenty eight names are listed as publishers starting with John Beecroft; the last one is E. Johnston. The covers are wrapped in archival, see-through, removable mylar jacket covers. The set looks good on the shelf with the sturdy bindings of each volume and both have very readable size fonts and clean, crisp pages. ; 8vo
