The Edition De-luxe of Audsley's monumental The Art of Organ Building which was limited to 250 copies. These signed copies are printed on vellum. The two volumes are the size of the large old family Bibles - so they are heavy. They could be mailed, but I guess they would be very expensive to post. The condition of this set is fair - they may need some restoration. There are many excellent plates.

 

The set in question are number 25/250 and they are signed by the great man himself.
