The Best of Gilbert & Sullivan

This three-record set contains highlights from all of the operas, from Trial 
By Jury through The Grand Duke. It comes in a special slipcase that also 
includes Christopher Hibbert's commendable book, Gilbert and Sullivan and 
their Victorian World (American Heritage Publishing Company, 1976).

I know this if outside the 78 L field but I know all these songs were 
probably recorded more than once on 78s.
I have a boxed set of 3 LPs in stereo titled THE BEST OF GILBERT AND 
SULLIVAN. The number shown is 3 CSL 1008 1 AND 2 AND 3. The numbers are the 
same except the last number on each record. The records look brand new and a 
300 page hardback book is included. As a G&S fan I am impressed.
Does anyone know when this set was recorded and issued? The book is shown as 
copyrighted in 1976 but the recordings could be earlier. Thanks. Jack
