These are all part of my original set many are inscribed To Peter. Original colored cloth, titles and decoration to spines and upper boards in various colors, various colored and pictorial endpapers.Each set is housed in one of the original of the 5 red slipcases with printed paper labels. Please note that the red slipcases have some slight staining on the bottom of the exterior this is only superficial and has not affected any of the books. Many of the books have their original protective glassine. Color illustrations by a variety of artists throughout each volume. This is a treasury of illustrations. For example, "Beauty and the Beast" has tipped in illustrations. "Aladdin" has 3 small tears on the spine. "Joseph and His Brothers" has 2 tiny pin wholes on the spine.
