Enid, Vivien, Elaine, and Guinevere : the four parts in one volume, each with half title, dated title page, and list of illustrations. 107, 49, 84, 41 pages; with frontispiece, and the 36 plates as called for. Impressive unrestored sound contemporary binding (Dickers & Son, London), with marbled endpapers, and edges gilt; joints and edges rubbed. Very light peripheral foxing to a few leaves of text, and to lowest inch of bottom margin of Guinevere plates (more pronounced on the final four leaves of text, and worse on blank rear endpapers). Light rippling to lower third of leaves throughout, with tideline verso to later plates - in a few instances a faint tideline is present to the right margin of a plate (see last photo). Overall a lovely example. 17 x 12.6 inches.
