This is a beautiful collection of Signed First Editions published by Easton Press. There are 100 volumes, all in extremely nice condition without attached bookplates or markings. Apparently 5 of these volumes are part of the Masterpieces of Science Fiction set, but have been included in this lot.
If you are interested in only the Masterpieces series feel free to contact me and we may be able to work something out to keep that set intact by adding volumes from this listing. Each book is signed by the author, and I find no volumes with notable flaws but have not examined each book from cover to cover. Each title is pictured in the photos provided and the collection includes books by Asimov (Foundation and Prelude to Foundation), Andre Norton, Poul Anderson, 4 by Anne McCaffrey, 2 by Ursula K. It is an incredible collection and nearly impossible to find a collection this size still intact.As we all know, Easton Press makes beautifully decorative versions of some of the world's great books, and these are no exceptions. Each volume is fully bound in real leather, with gilt page edges, silk moire endpapers, distinctive tooling and high quality acid-free paper for books which can be passed down to the next generation. This is a beautiful collection and comes from the home of Jean Auel, author of the Clan of the Cave Bear series. This was her personal collection and was treated with care and respect.

The grades are Fine, Near Fine (NF) + or -, Very Good (VG) + or -, Good (G) + or -, Fair and Poor.I can't think of anything that we will be listing here which will be worse than Very Good or Good. For magazines, the grades will be Near Mint+(which will be our best grade as we don't use Mint for used or collectible magazines because any circulated magazine will have some damage, no matter how imperceptible) or -, Excellent+ or -, Very Good+ or -, Good or Poor. Fine or Near Mint+: Little to no wear, with at most one or two minor flaws. Near Fine or Excellent: Light wear, described in the listing, may contain a small marking in the book by a former owner.
Possibly a bumped corner or a mark. Magazine will show a little wear, probably appears to have been read. Very Good (both categories): A little more wear, maybe some creasing or soiling on a magazine; definitely read.Book showing some light marks on the covers, maybe a bumped corner or two. Both should be clean inside unless noted. Good: Significant wear, with some soiling and probably some light rips or tears. Books are significantly worn, soiled and sunned.
