Book - 1830
Poor condition set of two. These are the oldest volumes I have. They are not in great condition with much of the spine lost but they are still bound and usable. They just wouldnt make an ideal birthday present. They are quite thin volumes as well and a light tan in colour as opposed to the mainly oxbrown red that all the other volumes are in.
These ones dont look like the photo. I'll get a proper photo at some point, maybe in a year or so when I have a spare 5 minutes.
