Two hundred twenty-three individual numbers plus various supplements. Beyond the highlight of the travel issues (illus. by Harry Fenn , J Smille, & J. Hill) are the plts by Winslow Homer. Treatment of various enterprises (coal mining), natural wonders (red wood tree being harvested, makes Bush smile), & local info. (City of Cincinnati). The text is usually in v.g. condition, & four of the vols are in orig. lea. & marbled bds. The other five have recent bkstrps & new labels. The text illus. are present, but some of the fold or supplement plts, most are either torn, creased, or gone. You'd be better off thinking of buying the 223 issues & letting any extra plts be serendipity. And pricing? Cheapest single issue @ ten (try that on your calculator!). And single volumes on line to nearly four hundred. (calculator?). ....for these nine.... 9 vol. (4359193953)
