Moscow: Progress Publishers, 1972 - 76. Hardcover. 46 vols., hardbounds illustrated with b&w plates and folded facsimile documents in monochrome; title pages are rubricated. Series binding: matched maroon cloth boards decorated in blind with a cameo portrait, titled gilt. All volumes are in very good condition, no ownership or other markings, and all have dust jackets, most (not all) in quite good condition, but volume 14 has a Lawrence & Wishart dj (dark green, the others in pale green) though the volume itself is identical to the others. Four djs bear spine-panel ownership memoranda ("April Thesis;" "Lenin's Military Policy") in shaky handwriting (no such notes repeated within). Most are enclosed in cheap, crude cardboard slipcases; some of these slipcases are in poor shape and all are acidic. Some mild dust soil here and there, generally a very good set.
Includes only the first of the two index volumes.
