These 4 catalogues from this illustrious London Gallery and Dealer would be very hard to find in such a fine set. They are all in 'Very Good' condition, but having been in our library for between 20 and almost 40 years, they do manifest some shelf-wear to the covers or dust-covers (where appropriate). Their combined weight is around 6 KG.
