In very good condition, with three to five , full-page, tissue-guarded Dore plates in each issue followed by several pages of Dante's text, as translated by Henry Francis Cary. Many pages in each issue unopened. Occasional light foxing and small publisher and binder's stamp, "S. Walker & Co." on the cover of each issue.
