Sorry, but I don't offer valuations. If you own this item yourself, and want to find out what it's worth, then the best advice I can give is to check eBay completed items to see if one similar has been sold recently.

    I am trying to find a new boxed set of this edition. I live in Australia, so copies here are pretty much out of the question. Any suggestions??? I have spent hours searching the bookstores in Us and UK. Only 2nd hand ones available.

    Thanks jacqui

    This set pops up on eBay fairly regularly - you might have some luck there. But it was published in 1999, so I don’t think there’s such a thing as a ‘new’ set any more - they’re all 10 years old now.
    Thanks for dropping by, and I do hope you find a nice set.

    Hey! I came across a set of these recently, but I’m unfamiliar with them. How do I tell with this set which printing and impression they are?

  4. Mike says:

    Hi Brian - I just checked my set and each book has the usual number line (or ‘Printer’s Key’) which includes ’1′ to denote the 1st printing (of this edition). Not sure how many later printings there were of this particular set.
