Title leaf, leaf with description of the work and a smaller two-page prospectus inserted into Volume I; Volume V with twelve pages of plate descriptions, leaves slightly smaller than plates. Original side-stitched binding in publisher's printed light olive brown wrappers. Volume IV disbound, lacking string, but complete. Plates faintly foxed, with only a few image areas with any significant darkening; single plate ("Passage du Pont de Lodi") in second volume with large horizontal closed tear to fore-edge, extending the width of the margin and only just affecting the plate mark but not the image area, old paper repair on verso; edges worn. Wrapper edges worn; some centerfolds starting to split; a trace of biopredation; some corners torn; Volume I with small hole to upper margin, Volume V with small label and partial sticker. Still, a very good set. A beautiful and fragile production. Rare with only two complete institutional holdings located (Yale, Bibliothèque interuniversitaire Sainte-Geneviève); Bibliothèque nationale with Volume I only.
