I bought this for my husband as a gift. He wanted more volumes of Peanuts. I looked at other collections, but was starting to get repeats of the same strips. He has enjoyed this collection. The quality of the books are great. They measure 9x7x3, which is smaller than I thought. My husbands likes the smaller size; now he'll have more room to collect the rest of the set. Great value--had a sticker on the back of $49.99.
