The cover and slipcase have some general wear with some indents, creases, and surface abrasions; some rubbing to the corners and spines; the prints each appear to be in overall very good condition; there is cracking to the black pigments, to the prints as well as throughout the illustrations in the books that include black pigment; otherwise, there does not appear to be any major condition issues.
