9 Volumes, comprising of

All volumes published by Harper Collins, except volume 8, which is published by Unwin Hyman.

All volumes published in 1991 except Volume 9 which was published in 1992.


All books originally bought in 1992 from a book club in monthly instalments, but never read. All books are complete with dust jackets, Volume 5 has a small tear on the lower front part of the dust jacket (see photos) and the spine of the dust jacket on volume 9 is slightly faded, but all books are in excellent condition.

At the time of purchase this was a complete set, as only these nine were published.


As mentioned, these books have never been read, and all pages are completely untouched and unmarked, and in mint condition, but please bear in mind that these are now 22 years old! There are no missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins.


Any questions, please ask and I will answer as honestly as I can. I can gladly provide more photos on request.

All my items come from a pet free and smoke free home, please see my 100% feedback and bid with confidence.

Local pickup is welcome due to the weight of these volumes, however courier delivery can also be arranged.

Thanks for looking, and happy bidding.
