First Edition. Two matching volumes in original green cloth with gilt lettering & design. Map endpapers. Description from DJ flaps tipped in to verso of front endpaper. These, like so many, are ex-library with the following flaws: call number in white on spine, pockets removed from front endpapers, stamp to front endpapers & title page; emboss to title page. Other than library markings, the books are in very good condition with minimal wear. Pages nice & clean, bindings very solid, gilt on covers still bright.
UKERS, William H. ALL ABOUT TEA. Two volumes. New York: The Tea and Coffee Trade Journal, 1935. 4to. Publisher's cloth. Co frontispiece, xvi, 559; viii, 568 pages. First edition. Still considered to be the most comprehensive book on tea, it contains an extensive bibliography and chronology on the subject. This is a very bright set. As with many copies of this set, the foreedge had been exposed to moisture, most probably before the books were bound, crinkling many pages (especially in Volume I) on the outside quarter of an inch of margin. None o the pages have lost their surface coating, however. The dust jacket flaps fo both volumes are pasted to front blanks. Still, a most desirable set.
