 Note to buyers. Although the underlying book material is now in the public domain due to their age,  much additional editing, cropping and deleting of erroneous material has also been carried out personally on all, making this book set a unique and a much improved offering. It is provided here at a particularly low cost, mainly to cover materials such as the DVD disc and label plus various associated overheads including eBay fees.

 It is now presented here in a convenient Adobe Reader form (.pdf files) suitable for all computer systems. This allows for all the really essential illustrations and photos to be shown, as opposed to the text only versions available.

  It consists of both private and publicly available material including a number of ex libris volumes.

The Adobe Reader itself is completely free to download from the Adobe web site,
although it usually comes pre-installed as standard on most computers
.

* NO resale or distribution rights are included. This unique collection on disc may not be copied/resold.

Overall, a nice collection at a low price that isn't going to break anyone, so go right ahead and
Treat Yourself!

* Please note that a number of the old books scanned will naturally show signs of age, such as an occasional watermark or browning/fading and although readable with minor adjustments to the options provided with the software they may not be in as pristine a condition as may be expected from newer volumes. Therefore allowances should be made accordingly.
