    1889 N188 Kimball "Goddesses of the Greeks and Romans" Complete Set (50) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry. GPA: 66.9. Rank: #1 on the SGC Set Registry. It is with a bit of irony that the N188 Goddesses of the Greeks and Romans series stand as one of the finer examples of 19th century lithography in the elegant and risqué portrayals of women of myth and legend yet stands in total contradiction to Victorian Era sensibilities. Could this be the reason N188s are now noticeably more challenging to acquire for mere mortal hobbyists or are the tantalizing, some semi-nude depictions such that once housed away they fail to be the fuel of future trades or deals? Regardless, this 50-card presentation is a crown jewel of the William S. Kimball & Co. library and one of the few sets ever made available at auction. Includes: SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 1 card, Psyche; SGC 84 NM 7: 4 cards, Clio, Erato, Fortuna, Nox; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 16 cards, Astraea, Aurora, Bellona, Calliope, Cybele, Fatum, Flora, Hygiea, Iris, Juno, Justitia, Leukothea, Pax, Polyhymnia, Terpsichore, Terra; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 4 cards, Aglaia, Lachesis, Suadela, Venus; SGC 60 EX 5: 18 cards, Amphitrite, Atropos, Diana, Euphrosyne, Fauna, Flora Aestiva, Flora Autumnalis, Hebe, Hegemone, Luna, Melpomene, Minerva, Mnemosyne, Proserpina, Thalia, Urania, Vesta, Victoria; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 5 cards, Euterpe, Fama, Klotho, Meditrina, Pomona; SGC 30 GD 2: 1 cards, Hekate; SGC Authentic: 1 card, Ceres.
