Condition: Near Fine


Limited edition, #158 of 750 copies. All volumes include slipcases. All books are near fine, slipcases are good to very good. A piece of the Volume X slipcase spine has come loose but is included, and a couple other slipcases have minor splits along seams. For reasons that are unclear, the first two slipcases, though numbered the same as the rest, are of a different design (it is possible the labels were removed from the original slipcases and replacements were made, but there is no evidence of this that we can see). With a small bit of restoration, this could be a beautiful set. 1925 Hard Cov... View more info
