Two volumes have previous owner's names written in ink on the front fly leaves (volume five and supplement volume three). Some occasional neat notations or text hatching in pencil, otherwise clean and sharp. Dust jackets all present and in good to very good condition, slightly sun faded and showing some signs of use (worn along spines, edges, and folds). The dust jacket to volume 3 has a small lost chip at the foot of the spine, and volume 4 has a small white paint stain on the spine of the jacket. Otherwise, the jackets are complete and in very good condition.This set includes one of the supplemental volumes: "Supplement Volume 3: Literatures" (this copy in near fine condition). There were a total of six supplemental volumes issued in the 1980s to accompany this set (each supplemental volume was issued without a dust jacket).
