; Contemporary 3/4 leather over scuffed marbled boards. Bright gilt lettering on spine. Text tight & intact. Rear hinge cracked & front hinge partially cracked with covers firmly attached. Early owner's ink stamp in front. Condition of individual books as noted after each title. Each book or part was issued separately at intervals throughout the year with the intention of having each series bound together although they were sometimes bound individually. There were 10 or more volumes published in this series. These books were of considerable interest because, at the time, they were one of the only sources of information as to current conditions in foreign countries. Most travel & exploration books were of a more historical nature.
