Complete matched "Robots" set, two volumes comprising of I, Robot and The Rest of the Robots. Both volumes are Dobson first edition first printings from 1967, obtained from the original purchaser. Hardback books are tight clean and square, without any lean. Boards clean and pretty sharp. Both title gilts are perfect. Text blocks are clean, with moderate toning to edges. Both volumes have spotting to the edges more pronounced on I, Robot. I, Robot has some spotting to the FEPs. Set feels lightly read. The spine ends are sharp except a very light bump to the head of the spine on I, Robot. Jackets have some very light handling marks to the gloss and gentle crimping to edges, more noticeably to the head of the spine of I, Robot. The jackets have light rubs to the corners and fore edges, without any losses. The black panels of these Dobson printings are particularly susceptible to damage, however both of these volumes are still nice. I Robot has gently sunned spine, with a couple of light rubs. The rear panel has a 3mm closed tear to the top edge, and three printers creases that appear as scratches but are creases that stand proud of the panel and therefore have rubbed to lose the ink. Rest of the Robots jacket is very smart, with a small 4mm dark mark to head of spine. These books are fitted with a non adhesive archival quality book protectors to make a quality addition to your collection. Note we do not use stock images, the books pictured are the books described. Overall these two volumes are great examples of these titles, the I, Robot is very good close to near fine, The Rest of the Robots is spot on near fine. These books are being sold as a set as they have always being together, since first purchased. An opportunity to obtain an uncommon first Dobson set of the Robots titles, that look great on the shelf in their archival covers. As first printings these titles are becoming more difficult to find, and in this condition would likely cost more on an individual basis to obtain.
