Lavishly bound by Strikeman of New York in a full, light-brown, crushed levant morocco, the panels with triple-gilt fillet borders, framing lovely oval bands of gilt floral design. Intricate gilt-tooling and gilt-design within the compartments. Doublures of navy-blue crushed levant, top-edges gilt. Each octavo volume uniformly crisp and bright, the set easily meriting a Near Fine and bordering on truly Fine. AND MOST SIGNIFICANTLY OF ALL, TIPPED-IN AT VOL. I (JUST OPPOSITE THE COPYRIGHT PAGE) IS AN ORGINAL HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT PAGE FROM "THE GENTLEMAN FROM INDIANA".
