First edition of this magnificent music encyclopedia published in parts from 1949 to 1968. Green quarter leather bindings and green cloth boards are protected by a transparent tight plastic skin, almost perfectly preserving the covers and spine. The skin is secured with tape to cards, cut slightly smaller than the covers, which are slipped under the edges of the plastic overlapping the pastedowns. The covers themselves do not appear to be taped and I believe that the skins could be removed without damage to the covers. Slight rubbing to the unprotected head and foot of spines. Otherwise, a few volumes have defects: volume 1 has a corner bump, slightly affecting all pages, volumes 5 and 11 have a short vertical crease to the spine. Bindings are tight, pages are unmarked; the leather spines are attractive with bright gilt titles and the covers are handsome as well. Fore-edges of pages are lightly foxed in all volumes; all volumes are VG or better. . This magnificent scholarly music encyclopedia covers music throughout history, civilizations and time. Profusely illustrated with full page plates, illustrations in the text, musical examples, and tables. Pages are printed on cream-colored coated paper. Top edges are stained dark rose. Text is in German. A beautiful set; shipping weight is about 100 pounds. . Small 4to 9" - 11" tall. ~14000 pages
