Can anybody help me? Thanks in advance!!!

It's a nice set that I'm quite interested in acquiring too. So, no, I can't help you!

They seem to fall into that category of books that haven't made the specialist market yet (where they will be well described, but probably overpriced), but sit with all these secondary/discount sellers. They're usually selling new, poorly describe their books (in a bibliographical sense), & don't answer questions (books are in some warehouse). All perfectly useless to the collector.

Sometimes I get the feeling Trotter is just laughing at us...

Is there an ISBN for this set?

Also, does anyone know where it has been published (UK or US)?

One for sale at Alibris from Canada, a mere £385 plus shipping presumably...
Or you could do what I am and buying them separately, not quite the same though! F

Way too expensive for my pocket:

I can think of dozens of books I'd rather buy for these absurd prizes.
