"The Harvard Classics" complete in 51 volumes, published by P.F. Collier. This is the first edition set with the flexible green covers, copyrights beginning in 1909.
Known as one of the greatest anthologies of all time, it covers every major literary figure, philosopher, religion, folklore and historical subject through the twentieth century. For a full list of all titles, you can check out the Wikipedia page.
The overall condition of this set is good, bindings are tight and the covers are clean with minimal wear. Exceptions are volumes 31 and 34, which show some water stains.
You'll find that complete editions of this set can run well over $250.00, not to mention the hefty shipping charges. I think you'll find today's bookperdiem to be a bargain.
