Harvard Classics 50 Volume COMPLETE SET 1909 / 1910 First Edition 1-50 Collier
Harvard Classics 50 Volume COMPLETE SET 1909 / 1910 First Edition 1-50 Collier. Shipped with USPS Media Mail.

Some of the hinges are cracked, some bindings very good and others starting to crack, the books are dry in general. Some have bold gold lettering on the spines and some are rubbed, some of the burgundy boards are nicely preserved and others are deteriorated. I did not clean the boards and they have a bit of accumulation of what might be mildew or whatever attaches itself to books over the course of 100 years. The edges of the books have some staining or other marks. This is far from a perfect set. The previous owner has made a pencil notation on the back endpapers.

Many of the books have color details in the text. There are also many black and white illustrations. All in all it is a complete set in varying conditions but it is all there. In my opinion none of the books are deteriorating to the point where you would want to throw them out. Most of the pages are very clean. I will ship this out in two different boxes but the shipping charge is singular. U … [Click Below for Full Description]
