John Galsworthy (1867-1933) was a popular English novelist, for which, mainly, he was awarded the Noble Prize in Literature and a successful playwright, largely writing social justice plays which were popular during the first two decades of the 20th century. Justice, the play, was particularly well received in America with John Barrymore acting the leading role.

The three volumes are equally valued as in good condition, firm and strong. The bindings show wear and the spines are faded about equally. There are also a few light pencil comments in all three.

The three volumes together are a good buy. I ship internationally. Please inquire for possibilities.
