All book sets we sell are previously owned, and the books in this collection are no exception. These books are more vintage than those in the Modern collection, and some were published as early as the early 1800s. The condition of the books is generally fair to good. We prioritize the condition of the spines, and provide pictures from different angles to give you a good sense. We have provided many more pictures because we want you to be pleased with your purchase. Should you have any questions, feel free to reach out.
