Description

This is a very good example, in unclipped dust jackets, of the far rarer American issue of the “Definitive Edition.” Only 500 copies were produced, using sheets from the British print run.

The dust jackets here are bright and intact, with short tears and edge chipping to the front faces, and fractional losses at the the spine heads, most significantly more than an inch to Volume III. The books appear unopened, but there is dusty fading to all three spines and modest browning to the pages. The contents are otherwise fine.
