The dust wrapper described as near fine- refers to the black blind-embossed French-style wrappers with tipped-on color [tinted] front cover label over boards. The black wrappers have a little edge wear and the spine has mild creases. These wraps are protected by semi transparent glassine covers and those are only in fair to poor condition due to age discolorations, tears and wrinkles mostly to front wraps which have a light pink paste-on label [see photos] with the words Painter Paragons printed in dark pink.
