I purchased this collection because it had 38 books, the other box set I was considering had 37 books. Asterix and the Chieftain's Daughter was released 6 months ago and is book #38. While the books obviously come in a box, it's not a display box so you have to pull each book out to find the one you want. I feel that for $250+ a display box would be a nice addition.

This really is a great set and if you're a big Asterix fan it's definitely worth adding to your collection. I grew up on these books so it's awesome that I get to take the adventure again with my son as we read them together.

One of my pictures shows the spines with the authors names. You can see where Uderzo took over after Goscinny sadly passed in 1977 and then when Uderzo retired and handed responsibilities of the books to Ferri/Conrad. I haven't read the newer books yet but I'm sure they follow the same great format as Ferri/Conrad were mentored by Uderzo.

Loved these as a child. Bought this set for my daughter and she read all of them in short order. The series has aged well and still entertains new readers.

Fantastic - my cousin and I used to own the originals way back in the early 70's as young boys - somehwre over time these were lost and we grew up. Well as a nostalgia blast I opted to buy this set, and am not disappointed, I am ploughing my way through them, and they are brilliant, I could not be happier.

Books are fine however the books have to be top loaded into the box in alternating fashion for them to fit. An appropriate storage box would be side fed with the spines facing out. This would ensure the longevity of the books. Box came damaged in any case as seen in the photo.
