MR's for sale here are in very good to mint condition.

 Occasionally I find an issue which have moderate surface scuffs on their covers (after passing through the mail)especially for volumes 20-24. These issues are fine internally.  I am selling these for $5 off the usual price.  Please inquire if you are interested in a clean copy with some surface scuffs.  The packaging of MR's improved in later years.

All copies sold are wrapped carefully and will be shipped in special packaging for protection during shipment.
