    Classics Illustrated #1-169 Bound Volumes (Gilberton, 1943-69). This incredible group of ten bound volumes brings together issues #1-169 of the Classics Illustrated series -- that's the title's full run! Also included are fifteen Classics Illustrated Special Issues, all giants. Most of the regular issues are not first printings -- approximately 50% range from HRN 161-169, but there are also quite a few in the 89-155 range, and a handful even earlier than this. Among the most notable gems are a HRN 15 copy of #14 and the Original Edition of #43. Each massive volume is attractively bound in a dark green leather-style cover, with titles stamped on the spine in gold. The name of the former owner is also stamped in gold on the front cover. All issues (most appearing in FN or better condition) have been trimmed in the binding process. Overstreet VG 4.0 value for group = $2,007.
