Overall good condition or better. This is an ex library edition with some library stamps, bookplate etc, some scuffing and rubbing but all pages are tight and intact.. Being a library edition it has been handled and I wouldn’t say this is in collector condition it is still a very rare set and a great edition to any masonic research library. These books are heavy and shipping will be over 30 lbs.
