Photos carefully as they are part of the description.All of my books are VERY OLD and have 100+ years of wear to varying degrees. 3 of these have had their spines re-backed, looks like by 2 different people. One just the spine re-backed [original spine laid down over it], the other 2 -the new leather also replaced the leather on the sides on the boards as well as the spine - picture #9 shows the 2 different types - very nicely done, matches well!
Boards - very secure, some spots [shown is the 4 dirtiest]. Mostly very good- a few inches of splitting to some [glued back down to prevent further splitting]. Spine & spine ends - varies - some good, some chipped, 6 with repairs.Varying degrees of wear - all touched up. Inner hinges - most very good - the 3 re-bound volumes have been taped or have black ribbon. Pages - generally very clean , only a few spots. Writing - one soldiers name had been crossed out and a new name written in.
Rips /folds - quick flip through each volume - looks like only a few of each. A NICE SET FOR YOU WAR COLLECTION! Please Add me to your Favorites list.

May have accumulated bad smells along the way [musty basement/ mildew/ smoke]. Dryer sheets in them for a few months makes a world of difference!
My nose doesn't work like it use to. So the old book smell doesn't bother me.
