Two small quarto volumes in dark blue polished cloth-backed boards with off-white printed paper spine labels and off-white printed dust jackets in original black slipcase, as issued; viii, 498 pages, portrait, map, 22 cm. Both volumes fine in about near fine to very good(+) jackets with a bit of gentle soiling, sunning and edge-wear, including a tiny closed tear to jacket front upper outer corner of volume two and a wee bit of chipping to jacket spine head of volume one, in a very good+ slipcase with mild edge and corner wear. All in all, quite a crisp, bright set. Signed neatly by Weizmann, the first President of Israel, beneath limitation statement of 500 signed copies. Number 458. "Printed on special paper." Below Weizmann's signature is a gift inscription from one private party to another, though not a significant association inscription to the best of our knowledge. Photos upon request.
