A nice bright set, with gilt on both spines still bright, and the suns on both covers some rubbed. Clean and tight inside. Inside front hinge paper is cracked, although the muslin is strong and tight. The colored, folding map of Norway and Sweden in the pocket at the rear of vol one is excellent, with no tears. It is an evocative description of rural Norway and Sweden more than 100 years ago. Bindings protected in clear, mylar dustjackets. Pages 441, 454. Smith's American Travellers Abroad, D 86, based on Du Chaillu residence and travels in Scandinavia of 5 years. Housed in a slipcase of marbled paper, showing slight wear.
