 Picture
Publisher: NY: Viking Press, 1940-53.
When people ask me what has happened in my long lifetime I do not refer them to the newspaper files and to the authorities, but to [Sinclair's] novels - George Bernard Shaw. All hard bound copies, six of which are first editions with the remaining five vols. later printings, and all published by Viking Press. Volume XI or the last volume (The Return of Lanny Budd) is an ex-library copy. A World to Win (#7) is a book club edition (bce). The six first first editions are: World's End (#1); Dragon Harvest (#5); Presidential Mission (#8); One Clear Call (#9); O Shepherd, Speak! (#10); and The Return of Lanny Budd (#11). As the photo shows, four volumes have dust jackets (although mostly with large chips or tattered, with #11 or The Return of Lanny Budd being the exception - with the dust jacket in near very good condition); the remaining volumes have no jackets. Several volumes have ex-libris bookplates or previous owner names on the front endpapers. In terms of general condition, all are in good-near very good condition except for Wide is the Gate (#4) with the front hinge starting; Presidential Mission (#8) with the front free endpaper glued to the front pastedown and a large abrasion to the rear pastedown; and The Return of Lanny Budd (#11) which is quite heavily shelf-worn. The texts proper appear free of any markings so overall this is a very readable set of the entire Lanny Budd Series, all in their original cloth bindings and at half the price of a new set in paperback. This set ships from our Canadian location and we only list books for sale that we physically hold in stock. At approximately 9 kilograms packed extra shipping charges will definitely be requested! We currently stock five complete sets of this series, including an unlisted set in mass market paperback, so please feel free to contact us directly about any other purchase possibilities.

In terms of general condition, all are in good-near very good condition except for World's End (#1) with hinges starting and corner tips worn through as well as foxing to endpapers; Presidential Agent (#5) with woiled side and bottom edges; A World to Win (#7) with what looks to me like a forged Sinclair signature on the title page (and to think I paid $80 for that!); Presidential Mission (#8) with moderate soiling to extremities of the front cover cloth; and The Return of Lanny Budd (#11) which is missing both free endpapers.
