This run lacks just four volumes from the complete set: A Kipling Anthology: Prose; A Kipling Anthology: Verse; Souvenirs of France & Thy Servant a Dog. Most volumes are reprints from the late 1920s but there are some first editions (in any format) included. Complete sets are very uncommon due to the long publishing history and the fact that, though it is called a Uniform Edition, it was never sold new as a set. Someone has clearly spent years putting this together.
