Six volumes in not-quite-uniform bindings. Five of the six are in the original blue half-leather bindings (with slightly differing shades), Vol 5 in a contemporary full navy blue cloth (not the modern re-binding). Vol One with the small bookplate of H.R. White, offsetting on endpapers, edges yellowed and a little spotted. Vol 3 with 'Rt Hon. A. Fisher P.C.' [Prime Minister in 1908–09, 1910–13 & 1914–15] stamped in gilt on the upper board. Extremities a little rubbed on most volumes, and the edges are somewhat yellowed but all volumes clean inside. A good to very good set. ***The 'other colonies' series - predominantly concerning Van Diemen's Land - not often seen as a separate set. (In recent years this series has been extended, with volumes VII, VIII, IX & X issued - we can supply all but VII, please enquire for details.)
