The frontispage has a previous ownership stamp (L B Behrmann - a much regarded Johannesburg advocate). From thereon the handpressed paper is healthy, thick, clean. Printers marks at the bottom of each page. Even taking its age into account the contents are in most pleasant condition. Volume 3: the front and end pages are worn and creased. The front paste down has the remains of a previous owner label. The pages have age-related tanning throughout. However, even taking the age of the book into account, the pages are healthy and agreeable. They are clean of annotation and marks, clear, confident and certain. Both are competent, venerable, learned. fk. Good/Fair.
