1792 10 volume matched set of Buffon's Natural History. These were a rescue set from Canada someone had tried to glue them using rubber glue and they were a mess. had to separate and rebind each volume with new deerskin spines was only able to save one original label. Luckily almost all the engravings were still present and all the matching leather boards were still with the volumes so here is a set that is rarely seen complete they usually sell individual books at high prices. the pages are complete and I marked in pencil on the title if any plates were missing. most have all. some toning along the edges and some spotting but overall a very desirable set for your natural history library.
