Collier & Son challenged Dr. Eliot to create such a collection and the first collection was published in 1909. These sets are selections from the Harvard Classics 5-Foot Shelf of Books featuring literature, poetry, essays, and philosophies and were published between 1909 and 1969. The specific dates are in each listing. The specific dimensions of each set are in the listings.
