The following description (excluding the condition portion) was written by Steve, a fellow ebayer who was kind enough to let me use his description. Condition: this set is in surprisingly nice condition. The pages are just a bit yellowed from age, but not badly yellowed.
The outside covers and binding edge show the most wear as there is scuffing and shelf wear there. The page edge shows a darker yellowing than the inside individual pages.All six volumes, complete: 5 volumes plus index.
