Notes: SIGNED BY EDITOR, WARMLY INSCRIBED TO BISHOP JOHN ROACH on the front free endpaper of Volume 1. This two-volume set in slipcase is in excellent condition. Pages are clean and have no marks other than the inscription. Cover corners are square, binding tight. There is a bindery flaw on the back cover of volume 2, where it looks like the buckram cloth was adhered over a scrap of paper that somehow slipped between the boards and cloth, or was otherwise applied unevenly. Slip case is very good, with a surface scuff and small indentation on one side. Bishop Roach was Archbishop of St. Paul and Minneapolis from 1975 to 1995. He delivered the benediction at the inauguration of President Jimmy Carter.
