Box Sets

I have seen a few softcover box sets, such as the one pictured below; I have seen complete 1 - 7 box sets as well, I just haven't been able to find a seller in the Czech Republic who wants to send to send to me here - which is often the case with translation collecting, unfortunately. I am not sure if the softcover GrandPre books were sold individually as well simply because I haven't seen them aside from box sets. I will say that I think they were because the books themselves have ISBNS, which are usually indicative of being sold apart from a set.
