Description

This is a very good First American edition set in unclipped dust jackets that are virtually mint. The cloth is similarly mint; crisp and bright. The contents are fine and unfoxed, with rich red topstains. The hinges on Volume IV are beginning to give but the binding remains tight.

Laid-into Volume I is a small white card that reads: “With Compliments of Dodd, Mead & Company, Inc.”

A lovely publisher’s presentation set.
