Book condition is Very Good; with a Very Good price clipped dust jacket. Edge wear to jackets, including a few tears. A few smudges and minor foxing to jackets. First Volume of the Histories is price clipped, all other publisher prices are present. Owner name and three-digit number verso front end page and owner name to half title page of Histories and Poems. No markings to text of any volumes, hinges are strong. This set is a bit of an abberation: the complete six volume set was published with Modern Library numbers 2-7 visible on the spine; however, included here is a duplicate of the first volume of the Tragedies, with the ML number 1 on the spine--uncommon thus; at the time of this listing, we could not find any other copies with "1" on the jacket spine. The front flap of the ML 1 also lays out an alternate numbering system that was supposed to have taken place for the series; starting with 1, then 1A, 2 and 2A--a plan that was apparently never followed. The contents of ML 1 and 2 (Both Volume One of the Tragedies) is identical, jackets vary in ML number, publisher price and list of titles verso jacket. An intriguing peculiarity for the Modern Library collector. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall
