Nice little set & nice price (£29.99), if you don't have it. Pretty sure they're all 1st impressions (generally) in this boxset.

No idea if anyone is interested in the US/HM versions of these editions (or whether they, unlike the UK editions, run into later impressions) --but £20, including postage, is about as cheap as you're likely to acquire three volumes of LR, of this size:

That is a very interesting set. I particularly like the Pauline Baynes illustrated slipcase. Did this edition come without jackets?

Books are bound in black buckram and come without jacket. But there are some specialists here, who can tell more about this set, as I haven't got one (yet).
