___DESCRIPTION: Twenty-three paperbacks comprising twenty volumes, each with deep purple cardstock covers with blue and white lettering, ALL TEXT IN GERMAN; duodecimo size (6 15/16" by 4 1/4"), pagination varies between 207 and 841 pp. with an average of approximately 500 pp; the set housed in the publisher's slipcase of cardboard covered in deep purple paper with blue and white lettering along the back and both sides, label on the bottom with bar codes and ISBN numbers.
___CONDITION: Volumes are fine to near fine, and the set appears to have been unread; the spines are smooth and flat, the text blocks are solid, the interiors are clean and bright, and the set is entirely free of prior owner markings; some light rubbing to the heads and tails of the spines, we assume from light shelfwear rather than from reading. The slipcase is still very good, generally sturdy although, from the weight of the books and the oblong shape, a few of the seams are beginning to crack and there is light overall rubbing.
___POSTAGE: Please note that this set is unusually large and heavy, and therefore additional postage will apply; please inquire for details.
