A most impressive, complete set of the trilogy edited by Walter Sidney Scott and published by the Golden Cockerel Press during the Second World War. Given all printing and binding materials were rationed, in very short supply and, often of poor quality, this set is all the more remarkable. The first title is more easily found, the second and third much less so.
