Here we have an absolutely lovely set of Lillywhite Companions. The small green annuals that ran from 1865 to 1885 inclusive.  

This set is a complete original paperback run from 1866 to 1885, the 1866 is ever so hard to find, with an 1865 limited editon facsimile. 

The set is in wonderful condition. 

Only points to note are :

1866 has small dog ear to the front cover and a small amount of tape to the spine near the rear cover as shown.

1867-1869 are wonderful.

1870 - small loss to top corner of front cover

1871 - Excellent

1872 - Ink splodge to front cover

1873 & 1874 - Excellent

1875 - some restoration to the spine 

1876 - 1880 - Wonderful

1881 - Small loss to the top of the spine paper

1882 - Stamp to the front cover, and small loss to rear cover.

1883 - Small loss to spine paper at the base

1884 - Small loss to the spine paper at the top

1885 - Some marks to the front cover.

The 1866 alone is worth over £1000. 

There is also the option to add 4 salendar boxes to keep them in (add £100) 

If you would like an 1865 original, please ask , we have a rebind in stock  which we would discount for you if purchasing this set and the 1865.

Hard to find a better set on the open market, it will take over 5 years to put a set together like this yourself.

Please see the large pictures.
