These books are complete with illustrations, B & W photographs, tables, figures, diagrams and fully indexed. These books are a wonderful look into the domestic world of women in the 1920's.
They are in good, clean and solid condition. I do not see any torn or creased pages - no written notes - The pages have that aged coloration on the edges exposed to the air. The bindings are tight with some mild wear and bumps to the corner edges.
