Homer's works, edited by Bothe, are in Greek with Latin notes]. All four volumes are in full leather, with raised bands and title labels, and a Dublin college device and classical prize-winner name embossed in gilt on front boards. The leather on spines is uniformly faded, although title labels are unaffected. There is a little scuffing to boards and edges. Prize labels are on front paste-downs there has been a little damage to a couple of the title pages, with the loss of a few letters also, slight loss to text at corner of pages 281/282 of volume 2. There are occasional patches of foxing which becomes quite heavy towards the rear of a couple of volumes.
