The Unexplained: Mysteries of Mind, Space & Time Part 51
There were at least five releases of this set. The earliest release (1980) was housed in binders with a gold edging and a title The Unexplained (just that) on the front cover in letters about 1cm high. The later release was a complete re-vamp, with articles re-sequenced and lots more colour photos. The binders for this release have the title in much larger letters across the full width of the binder, and the sub-title 'Mysteries of Mind, Space and Time' underneath. Collectors of the first release were encouraged to remove the magazine covers - a common practice with Orbis publications - so that the page numbers would flow in sequence within the binders. Individual parts were then filed using flat metal strips passed through the staples. Is there really a Loch Ness monster? Does the Bermuda Triangle actually exist? Remarkable photography and detailed research explaining the science behind each mystery will intrigue even your most reluctant readers. The full part-work set comprises 13 volumes with 156 parts and an Index. It would have originally taken three years to collect this set.
