This is a wonderful set that I've kept for myself. Again, I'm raiding my bookcase to tide me over until my next buying trip. if this set isn't sold soon, I'll remove it. It's full calf leather, navy, two volumes, of this famous set by Samuel Johnson. They have marbled front and ends pages, and are in quite good shape for their age. The front is starting to come lose from the spine in one volume, but I will repair this with good book binding glue. They were published in London in 1821. Each volume measures 8 and 1/2 inches long, 5 and 1/2 inches wide, and is 1 inch deep. This is a great set for the money!
