Dust jackets in gray paper with navy lettering; all volumes bound in burgundy cloth with gilt spine lettering.

A Rip Van Winkle find: volumes are "new" but as aged: never previously sold, never consulted. Dust jackets show the micro edge tears, slight scuffs, and spine toning of long but appropriate storage. Boards and binding are bright, as new; textblocks scarcely opened. Roman catnip for the expert numismatist.
