Each volume with title page and index. Attractive Contemporary half calf, red and black morocco spine labels, marbled-paper boards, slightly rubbed, light wear to head/tail of a few joints but all volumes remain strongly bound. Contents clean and tight, plates generally very clean and bright, occasional light offsetting and browning, foremargin of one plate stained, a little oxidisation of the red pigment to the odd plate. Original end-papers, no inscriptions. An excellent early run of this most famous of all botanical periodicals. [Nissen BBI 2350]
