This is the 1957 illustrated edition with illustrations by Philippe Jullian. Contains 10 of the 12 volumes. Lacks Vol. 1 which is Part One of "Swann's Way", and lacks Vol. 3 which is Part One of "Within A Budding Grove". Contains Vol. 2 which is Part Two of "Swann's Way", which has some small white spots to the covers and with the slightly stained and torn dust jacket lacking some small chips and one large chip at the spines' ends and covers' edges. Vol. 4 is Part Two of "Within A Buding Grove", which has a closed one inch tear to an upper hinge, and with the dust jacket having a one inch closed tear to an upper corner, with some small chips off the edges. Volumes 5 through 12 are generally very clean, with vols 11 and 12 having some whitish spotting to the covers. All are in generally very clean dust jackets with complete spines having a few, small closed edge tears. All 10 volumes have a slightly musty aroma. All the dust jackets have the original 12/6 price on the flaps. All the pages are very clean, are still crisp, and are tightly bound. There are no ownership inscriptions or bookplates. This is an impressive looking group of 10 books, with the blue and white dust jackets being mostly very clean, with unfaded spines. I will not be able to find the 2 missing volumes, since the previous owner made a note that he had spent some time trying to complete the set. Postage will be about $48.00 to mail outside the U.S. Bookseller Inventory #
