The Works of Ion L. Idriess. National Edition [the complete twelve-volume set]
Sydney, Angus and Robertson, 1938 (Volumes 3 and 7) and 1939.
Octavo, twelve volumes, with each one containing approximately 250 pages plus plates (and endpaper maps in all except Volume 7, 'The Yellow Joss'); loosely inserted are clipped newpaper obituaries of 'Flynn of the Inland' and the author.
Gilt-decorated green cloth with printed black title-labels; spines lightly sunned and mottled (two more heavily so); insignificant marks to a few covers; edges, endpapers and adjacent leaves foxed; endpapers offset; a very good set.
A uniformly bound collected reprint edition of the author's standard works to that time. Each volume is inscribed to the original (named) recipient, dated (1939, with December in one volume) and signed in ink by the author. The inscriptions (repeated only once) are the usual Cheerios, Sincerelys, Good Fortunes, Sunshiny Days and Jolly Good Lucks To You. At that level, there's really not a lot not to like about Ion Idriess ...
