Description

Biblo and Tannen 1964. Four Volumes plus index bound in seven volumes in blue cloth. A masterwork. "The Palace of Minos: A Comparative Account of the Successive Stages of the Early Cretan Civilization at Knossos". A very attractive set of this classic (and scarce) study. The bindings of all volumes are sturdy and tight. Each volume has the previous owners name and a price in marker, and a cartouche on the front end paper. A set of this condition would normally run upwards of $1500, but the previous owner did scattered yellow highlighting of place names through a number of the volumes, hence the reduced price. The highlighting is usually only a name, not an entire text line. Given that the set is several thousand pages in length, the highlighting affects only a small fraction of them. Details below, all highlights and notes have been tagged with an inserted slip of paper where they occur for easy tracking. (Needless to say, extra shipping charges apply for this set.)
