The dustjackets feature some of John Howe's most famous illustrations, with a Gold Band to the top and bottom with the runes in black. All dustjackets in Near Fine condition with minor rubbing to the gold bands, virtually no loss of color. The slipcase features the Centenary logo stamped in gold to both sides of the black faux leather case. A very uncommon and extremely hard to find set.

No previous owners names or markings, not price clipped, in extraordinary condition.
An exceptional set of books, only one printing of these books were ever produced.This separate three book set, makes handling and viewing much less of a problem then the single volume editions that were large and awkward to handle
