    After much research I have come to the conclusion that these are in fact rebound original printings & that the original book covers & band were bound into the back of each book.
    New covers are Morrocan leather, raised band, paper-over-boards with decorative gilting and gilted pages. Gauffered edging in gold gilt. Inside feathered boards matching band color of each book.
    Marginalia penciling noted.

    IX indicating 2nd state on content pages.

    If anyone knows about this specific printing I would much appreciate as I have searched the internet for this particular binding to no avail.

    Thanks
