Six volumes (of seven, but this comprises two sets complete in themselves - and see below for the remaining volume in the series). Limited edition facsimiles: each volume #374 of 500 copies. Large 4to. Diggles: each volume x, 142pp, with in total 126 full page colour prints. Mathews: each volume x, 182pp, with in total 105 full page colour plates. Half-bound in grey calf and linen, lettered in silver, pictorial coloured endpapers. A fine clean set. ***Note that we also have copy #374 of the large volume that completed this set - John Gould: The Birds of Australia supplement Parts 4&5 - but it has been affected by damp. Most of the pages have damp-staining of varying intensity and/or crinkling but there is no adhesion - and the boards are in very good condition. We can include this in a purchase of the six other volumes at no additional cost.
