Set of 39 ancient books in very good condition. Bound in the original full leather, decorated by hand-tooled gilt. Spines with five raised bands and two leather spine labels. Covers have large coat of arms deeply embossed on front and rear. Possibly the numbering on the spines is a bookbinding error.
Overall the set is in very good condition. Leather has visible wear on most volumes, chipping, rubbed areas and some with splitting between spines and covers, but since the bindings were sewn, all covers remain firmly attached.
Illustrated with many folding maps. Each book has at least 1, while others can have as many as 10.
