This is a good set of 8 hardcovers. 1937 Standard Book Company, New York. The set is in good condition inside and out. There is light natural tanning to pages from age but foxing is minimal in each and mostly limited to endpapers as expected in vintage volumes. The pages appear clean and free of markings. The bindings are tight and straight. The olive green hardcover boards are also good and each has gold title lettering along the spine which is legible with only light wearing. Each hardcover has light wearing to olive green boards, mostly at corners and edges. See photos. Along outer page edges of a couple volume there are some smudges but they do not carry over to inside pages. NOTE: These are SMALL hardcovers, 16mo in size or 4" x 7" in size with approx. 300 pages each and be aware the text is smaller as designed for this small set and would be expected for printing 16mo volumes of the times.

This 8 volume complete set features 700 immortal selections from the writings of the world's greatest authors. Compiled in alphabetical order in the set, you will find selections from Aesop and Aristotle, Balzac and Bede, Brontë and Carlyle, Dante, Defoe, and Doyle, Goethe and Grimm, Holmes and Hugo, Lamb and Lincoln, Poe and Shakespeare, Swift, Tennyson, Tolstoy and Twain along with many, many more. This vintage set is small but might and handsome in its olive green decor.
