The only example of this set than I can find anywhere on the internet. Published in the 1950s by Thomas Nelson and Sons Ltd, London in their Gift and Presentation Classics series, this boxed set of six adventure novels is a treasure and the books are in excellent condition.

The six books are: Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain; White Fang by Jack London; Greenmantle by John Buchan; Barlash of the Guard by H Seton Merriman; Children of the New Forest by Captain Marryat; Allan Quartermain by H Rider Haggard.

The books look to have never been read and have not been taken out of the box much at all. All six books are in excellent condition with bright, clean pages. Allan Quartemain has a couple of thin white marks on the blank front endpapers, otherwise books are in fine condition. The tops of the closed page edges are tinted bright red, this has remained uniform across all six volumes. The books have never been written in and have no other markings of previous ownership.

With cream boards, gilt decoration and a bright red title plates with gilt italic titles. The cream boards are also excellent.

Housed in the original box, with open out flap (see photos). The box has tanned with age and has a few dark spots on the lid with one black scuff on the side, but remains very sturdy and sound.

Like opening a time capsule! Your Presentation Gift Se will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged with tracking and insurance. I am always happy to include a gift card with a message in the parcel.

Boxed measures H 17 cm x W 14 cm x D 12 cm. Weight 1.8 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).

* If you would prefer for your books not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the full protective packaging please add a note to the order.
