As you can see in the pictures, there is a stain on the bottom outside and what looks to be a water stain on the front three or so pages. there is no staining where the text begins.

Hello,

Thank you for your patience.

The 1910 Little Brown & Company printing of Plutarch Lives comprised of 5 volumes in the set.

A complete set from 1910 (as there were earlier version printed prior by Little Brown and Company) retails for $350 for the 5 volumes together.

Thank you for noting that the condition issue is not throughout the book.

Individual volumes , with watermarks on the covers, ave a retail value of $40 each on today's market, or $120 for the 3 volumes that you have.

Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars. If you require further assistance, no worries, the question thread does not close even after leaving a rating.
