An overview of the books; Books were put out each year to show the most fabulous gardens in England, where such things were national obsessions back then.
Slight dusty smell to the books, no mold or mildew issues. The books are packed with photos and illustrations from the expedition.
The books' pages do not show any foxing or brown spotting. The books have green hardcovers with the title of the book and author signature in gold gilt. Same with the spine.The pages are still firmly bound together in the volumes and each book still has the finish on the spine. The covers do show some minor finish loss, some rub at the corners.. The front and back covers of the first volume and the back cover of the second volume are a little loose at the spine and will need some attention. Some sort of Publishers & Booksellers Protective Assn stamp in the back of Volume 1 with a 67548 stamped on it.
