    J.B. Bury, et al, Editors. The Cambridge Ancient History. Cambridge: University Press, 1924.
    Second edition. Twelve large octavo text volumes featuring numerous fold-out maps and illustrations, plus five octavo volumes of plates, photographs, and illustrations designed to complement the text.

    Brick red cloth covers with gilt design on cover and gilt lettering on spine. All books show light to moderate shelfwear, occasional rubbing and a few bumped corners. Spines are lightly and uniformly sunned, with surprisingly little wear or bumping to spine ends. Deckled fore-edge; top and bottom edges are gilded. Textblocks are uniformly fine, with bright clean leaves and only very occasional smudging or foxing. Over the past half century The Cambridge Ancient History has established itself as a definitive work of reference, this being a particularly nice set.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
