Every item in our inventory has been inspected, very strictly graded, and bagged for its protection. Shrink Wrapped. Still in the original factory shrink wrap, with condition visible through shrink noted. For example, "SW NM " means shrink wrapped in near-mint condition. Near Mint. Like new with only the slightest wear, many times indistinguishable from a Mint item.

While I loved these books for putting everything into one place, you need to be careful with allowing everything in these books into your games. Some of the spells are just ridiculous. Certainly I agree, especially the more world-specific ones. The DM has to be at least a little mindful when placing them, or be willing to retract or modify them later.
But I do think think the editors did some pretty reasonable work in that direction already. I keep waiting to see these turn up at the used bookstores or FLGS because that's a lot spell chaff to stuff into random scrolls, and some of those spells really are ridiculous if what I've culled from old issues of Dragon is any indication.
Like a lot of my collection, I got mine off EBay a few years ago. WotC has apparently released new scans of the pdfs for Encyclopedia Magica series, so perhaps they'll get to releasing new scans of the Compendiums as well.
I hope so! It would be a great resource to have in low-cost digital form these days. Excellent post, and thanks for the count!
I use these for my 1st edition games, though I strictly enforce material components. Anyway, great job. Glad to hear they do work well for your 1st Edition games and that the total count is helpful. I was really surprised when I couldn't find a number from my initial search.
A few updates 3 years later. I notice at this time that the first 2 of the 4 volumes are now again? Hopefully the other volumes will be made available shortly. A spreadsheet index of all the spells is available from James Rizza on Dragonsfoot. His counting there different from mine indicates 3, spells total!
Looking at the list more closely, I think that James duplicated any spell with multiple "schools" of magic listed so they'd appear separately when sorted, I suppose. Some of us might consider de-duplicating the list for other uses. Also I wish the list included campaign-world-specific identifiers, but that's not here. Nonetheless, a very impressive chunk of work. Grand Total: 2, Wizard Spells.

Wizard's Spell Compendium Volume One
Existing more 2nd and 3rd level spells than 1st level spell always bothered me but crossing it with rarity makes sense to me now. My interpretation of this is: Lower level spells are simpler and more common because they are all around spells usable in many situations or very frequently while higher levels spells are used in specific context. Middle level spells are more numerous because they are the middle ground between simplicity, power, etc Roughly comparing it to Math, lower level spells are basic arithmetics, middle level spells are linear algebra and calculus and higher levels spells are the Simplex algorithm and the Boltzmann equation
