Most of other volumes have some marks of former damp to margins, endpapers and last few leaves, and some 35 leaves in Book 8 of Vol II have additional grey marks, none affecting legibility. Some browning and foxing, but all pages tightly bound in, with paper strong and crisp. Text in Latin throughout with copious notes giving references and explanations, and large indexes in each volume. *A useful and full early French edition (for the Dauphin) of Pliny the Elder's Latin Natural History.
