Every volume under the reigns of George/Helen Macy and family, from 1929 to its sale to Cardavon, then subsequently to Shiff. Some of the titles that were produced under Shiff are also included leading up through the 49th series (#1- 548, All The King's Men). This collection also includes the special publications series (S 01-10). Aside from a handful of titles in good-good+ condition, every title is in near-fine to fine condition. Over 50% of the collection comes with the original glassine wrappers. Truly a wonderful collection of one of the most sought after series in all of book collecting.
