There are Compleat Sets of all the Liver and Lights publications contained in many public collections, most notably The Tate Library, The National Art Library (V&A), Winchester School of Art Library (who also have all the graphics, invites and special editions …). Most recently, the British Library acquired my last full set for the nation, but…
I have managed to coddle together one last full set by buying back and remaking/ mending earlier damaged editions. If you want it, it will really be the last complete set! £ 6,000
