This set of books is in truly brilliant condition - all with crisp corners and edges, and very tight binding - it is likely they have rarely been handled, let alone read. Most certainly they have been properly stored these past four-and-a-half decades as they are still neatly squared (no indications of humidity warping or swelling), and have no mildew scent or spotty discoloration. The pages show almost no age-tanning which is virtually unseen among books printed in the years before modern day acid-free papers. The artwork coloring on the covers remains bright and vibrant.
The original box is amazing, which is extremely rare - it could easily pass for brand new if the 45 year old graphics didn't date it! Please see pics for details.
Each of the original 8 books indicates they are 1st Edition Harper Trophy Book Printings 1971 - the 9th title "The First Four Years" indicates it is First Edition, 4th Printing 1971. They were printed in the USA.
