Hardcover (without Dust Jackets) [Dark blue cloth]
Item Number: 207976
This is a very good First English edition set, without dust jackets. The cloth remains a deep, rich blue. The gilt titles have very modestly dimmed. There is slight bubbling to the cloth of Books 3 and 5 only, with faint scuffing and light shelfwear to all volumes. The bindings are all square and tight and the contents are all virtually mint and unfoxed; seemingly unopened.
VOLUME I (Book 1) is the rare Third State of the First Printing (per Cohen) with the Errata slip tipped-in at Page 1 and the missing quotation mark on Page 472. There is some fraying to the spine edges, else fine.
VOLUME IV: THE AFTERMATH (Book 5) is the Second State of the First Printing (per Cohen) with the Errata slip tipped-in at Page 9.
A splendid example.
