All edges gilt, inside edges of boards tooled gilt, silk page markers, marbled endpapers, head- and footbands, etc. Each volume housed in a dark green leatherette slipcase with the Churchill Arms gilt on top panel. Variants Some sets were bound in full red morocco with plain red slipcases; in full cream morocco with the original style of slipcases; and in a few other colors on an individual basis at least one set exists in light blue morocco, and another in full green goatskin.
