Could someone give me a brief appraisal of the above. I’ve been offered these books at an extremely attractive price, and a cursory examination confirms them to be “in very fine condition complete with dust jackets.” However, due to time constraints, I was unable to judge the worth of their contents.

And, in order to prevent the resident pedant from contracting palpitations, I request replies off-line.
