Thanks for the info!

The non-airmail is enough of a shock. The set weighs in at about 15Kg, so I listed it as 18Kg to allow for error and packaging. I came up with about ?80 shipping on something that's currently at ?31 on eBay.

Somehow I just don't think I'll bother bidding on this as I don't think I want to pay to ship it :^/

"National Encyclopedia 12 Vols 1870's"

I'm looking for 2-3 old (1870's to 1930's timeframe) Encyclopedia's for a couple of writing projects. I probably should be smart and see what all is available in this area.

OK, I just realized something, it should be 13 volumes, and it's missing one volume. I *definitely* won't be bidding on it.
