London, Longmans, Green, and Co., 1888.

Royal octavo, four volumes, xx, 752, 16 (publisher's catalogue); xii, 760; xii, 856; and xii, 922 pages plus two loosely-inserted abbreviations bookmarks.

Quarter leather and cloth lightly worn, with a small chip from the head of the spine of the second volume; two spines cracking but sound; inside surfaces of the flyleaves and the adjacent leaves foxed, with scattered foxing throughout; binding strain and stitching loose in a couple of places in the second and third volumes, with a few loose leaves in the latter; overall, a very decent set.

Provenance: Henry Priestley (1884-1961), Australian biochemist, with his pictorial bookplate in each volume. 'His most enduring monuments at [Sydney] university are the department of biochemistry itself, and the B.Sc. (Med.) degree, a research training programme for medical students, which, against opposition, he fought to have established in 1948, only months before his retirement' ('Australian Dictionary of Biography').
