THE LIVES OF THE NOBLE GRECIANS AND ROMANS (1941). Very, very rarely is this set seen in such a well preserved condition! I expect several of you reading this have been keeping an eye out for just such a listing as this!
The merits of this beautiful Dwiggins-designed and -signed set are well known to LEC collectors. There is very slight wear at the top and bottom of the spines and slight edgewear elsewear, but the only other imperfections worth noting (following my thorough inspection of each of the eight volumes) are slight fading to Vol 1 and a small patch of darkened spine on Vol 8.
In short, I doubt a better condition set will come on to the market for years, if ever don't let this one get away, only to kick yourself later! Basically, this set is as close to Fine as can be realistically expected by even the most perfectionist of collectors.
The slipcases are free of foxing, but have some marks. I used Titebond III glue to expertly mend edgewear and a few short tears.
The rear panels are sunned, which means the previous owner(s) took the correct precaution to preserve the spines. "Great Packaging"; "well wrapped"; "careful packing" and Wow, super packing, took me 10 min.
