Comments on the Collection

I started collecting to distract myself from a broken heart, and it worked. As I've learned more about the books, I've narrowed my interest to impose some sort of lid on my obsessive nature. Although I have no hard and fast rule, I've sort of picked an arbitrary year, 1943 (a year that would include my Shakespeares 1,2, and 3) and am trying to get close to what would comprise a complete set for that year, but more precisely, I'd like to confine my collection to the g jacket or earlier. I'm going for the first 37 Giants in the first 3 bindings. Firsts are not necessary, but condition is now starting to matter. It's been great fun for me.
