Ownership bookplates also present along with an ownership legend dated 1956. Later Reprint (with text in Fraktur German indicating that the page counts correspond in some way with the original edition) of von Humboldt's masterwork, the four volumes published before his death. An atlas was published posthumously but is not included here. Condition is very good except for a fair amount of foxing to pages, slight edgewear with bits of fraying, front hinge of volume 4 is cracked and the joint is split and fraying.
