Each tractate comes with an informative introduction to the subject at hand.

Condition: The majority of this set is in excellent condition, with that 'new feeling' to them, unused with or without some minor spots or minor blemishes. However I have gone through each volume and noted any anomalies: There are 9 volumes with either noticeable usage
on outside spine and/or obvious stain and usage to side pages, or a name or ink-stamp (Only 3 have a name or ink stamp), 1 of the 9 volumes has some leaves that are not attached to the binding towards the middle of the volume, but no missing pages. No internal writing, highlighting, notations etc. or missing pages in any volume of this set. One volume (Gittin 2) has a cover blemish, even though the actual volume is pristine.
Tractate Berachot has damage to outside of spine as shown. The majority of the volumes look to be unused albeit with the normal aging for the year published. Extremely hard to find a complete set in one place. I have provided separate photos of each order of the Talmud and some close-ups to give you an idea of the condition. Due to the weight and number of volumes, these books will be carefully packaged and cushioned in 3 separate shipments for the safety of the volumes.
