This is a very good complete set of English First editions, all in correct uniform dust jackets with bright spine color. The second COMPANION to Volume VI (Part 2 ) is a First American edition and the recent new “DOCUMENTS” volumes for Volumes VI and VII from Hillsdale College Press (a total of four, to date) are, of course, First American editions (never issued in the UK).

All volumes are unprice-clipped. MAIN Volume I dust jacket is very slightly edge-chipped. The contents are fine, with faint scattered foxing to the fore-edges only.

Volume II jacket has the publisher’s later price sticker on the front flap, else fine.

Volume III jacket is very slightly edge-chipped at the head and along the rear fold.
Volume IV jacket is significantly less faded along the notoriously fade-prone spine, but has a strip of fading along the lower edge of the front face. The contents are fine, if ever so slightly toned at the prelims, with a faded topstain and some roughness to the cloth.

The contents of all volumes are otherwise fine, with bright top stains.
