New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1961. First Edition. Hardcover. 6 X 8 3/4 Inches. 22 VOLUME RUN. Very Good / Very Good. Item #3039
Incredible collection of the first 22 volumes of "The Papers of Benjamin Franklin." The 22 volumes run from 1961 to 1982. While the series did continue, an assemblage of this many consecutive volumes is practically unheard-of. All volumes are roughly VG/VG. NO previous owner names, plates etc... Volume 22 does exbibit a chip to foot of DJ spine. This is the only major flaw of the collection. The lot includes 20 FIRST PRINTING BOOKS, ONE SECOND PRINTING BOOK AND THE FIRST VOLUME IS A THIRD PRITNING. There are six books that have been price-clipped. Overall, a very nice run that covers Franklin's life from January 6, 1706 to October 27, 1776. (NOTE: THIS LOT NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE OUTSIDE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES. THIS LOT WILL MAY INCUR ADDITIONAL SHIPPING CHARGES AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT.).
