London: Pickering, 1847. 
Two volumes in three, the first two comprising the two parts of Volume 1. Volume 1, Part 1 is in brown cloth, printed paper label on the spine. Volume 1, Part 2 is in dark green cloth, printed label on spine. Volume 2 is in dark green cloth, printed label on spine. Both covers of Volume 2 are detached, and the paper label is partly chipped away, with loss of text. Both parts of Volume 1 have some light chipping to spine ends, and moderate wear to the paper labels, but are mostly still legible. In general a very good set, the different cloth types suggesting that it has been made up from two different sets.
