Note to buyers. Although the underlying book material is now in the public domain due to their age,  much additional editing, cropping and deleting of erroneous or damaged material has also been carried out personally, making this book set a unique and a much improved offering. It is provided here at a particularly low cost, mainly to cover materials plus various associated overheads including fees.

 It is now presented in a convenient Adobe Reader form (.pdf files) suitable for all computer systems. This allows for all the really essential illustrations to be shown as opposed to the text only versions often available. The Adobe reader itself is free to download from the Adobe web site, although it usually comes pre-installed on most computers.

Overall, a great collection at a low price that isn't going to break anyone so why not go ahead and Treat Yourself!

* Please note that a number of the old books scanned will naturally show signs of age, such as an occasional watermark or browning/fading and although readable with minor adjustments to the options provided with the software they may not be in as pristine a condition as can be expected from newer volumes. Therefore allowances should be made accordingly.

 DOWNLOADS  are in the usual 'zipped' (compressed) form requiring unzipping upon receipt - a utility for this is usually already installed on most computers and simply requires double clicking on the file to select the unzip command, otherwise it's readily obtainable free on the internet. You will be quickly sent a secure Link for downloading the collection within just hours of your purchase, depending on your time zone. Try it - it's quick, reliable and convenient!
