PLEASE NOTE, I have only one complete set, but I have more than one of some of the prints.  The number in parentheses is the number over and above the set that I have available. 

The condition of the set prints and descriptions are excellent overall.  I used archived photos to save the prints from unnecessary handling.  There are a few dogears and a few prints have light soiling in the margins.  The "Marshall Apothecary"  print has a light but larger crease on the margin, the last 2 prints in the collection have heavy foxing and more severe soiling and someone cut the bottom of the margin off these last 2 prints right to the bottom of the text.  The  set will come in their original shipping box inside a new shipping box to protect the corners.
