Item Description: Alfragide, Ediclube [printed in Sabadell (Barcelona) by Egedsa for S.A.P.E., Madrid], 1998., 1998. 15 volumes. Small folio (26.8 x 20 cm.), sturdy publisher's blue leatherette, front covers and spines richly gilt with Portuguese royal arms in three colors, illustrated endleaves. Superficial scratch of about 8 cm. on front cover of volume XIII; otherwise as new. Profusely illustrated, about half in color. *** This important "heterodox" history is unfortunately not available through normal book trade channels. Printed in Barcelona with the collaboration of a Madrid publisher, it is sold only by Ediclube, directly to the public, door to door-the purchaser is required to buy the books in order to obtain a TV, and pays in installments over an extended period, including huge amounts of interest. Contrary to what one might conclude about the quality of this work based on its method of distribution, it is a somewhat erudite production. In fact, we think it would probably not be very "user-friendly" to students below the university level. Specialized articles provide synthesis of research in their fields, and sometimes suggest new avenues of research of value to experts. We have at present one set in stock.
